How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses | Digital Tools for the Classroom | Scoop.it

Juárez Correa didn’t know it yet, but he had happened on an emerging educational philosophy, one that applies the logic of the digital age to the classroom. That logic is inexorable: Access to a world of infinite information has changed how we communicate, process information, and think. Decentralized systems have proven to be more productive and agile than rigid, top-down ones. Innovation, creativity, and independent thinking are increasingly crucial to the global economy.

One of my roles is to serve as the Network Coordinator and help facilitate the Internet filtering.  Well, educators are awesome at finding value in tools that others may see as "entertainment".  In this case, YouTube does provide a wealth of education resources and this list just touches on a few.  Thanks to EdTechReview for compiling this list.

Those of you reading my share please add any additional channels that are beneficial to educators in their comments feed.

Now the time has come for NEW INNOVATION: "First:  Simplicity of Set UP. The user could take the computer out of the box, plug it in, and be ready to go." Steve Jobs

The design of the product comes first, the development of the hardware had to follow to fit the design, never the other way around. Design goes into the very inner workings of a device.
