David Thornburg: Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today

David Thornburg: Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today | Education Technology Today | Scoop.it
A conversation with David Thornburg about designing a better classroom

 

“Of all the places I remember from my childhood,” David Thornburg writes, “school was the most depressing.”  The now award-winning educational futurist and creator of the “educational holodeck,” Thornburg’s early experience in the classroom prompted him to help others rethink traditional classroom design. In his latest book, From the Campfire to the Holodeck: Creating Engaging and Powerful 21st Century Learning Environments, Thornburg outlines four learning models: the traditional “campfire,” or lecture-based design; the “watering hole,” or social learning; the “cave,” a place to quietly reflect; and “life”—where ideas are tested.

Great points here - I think I want to read his books

Annette Schmeling's comment, November 20, 2013 10:59 AM
Engagement is the key. When the teacher, or professor, themselves have fully engaged with the material and used multiple senses in mastering the content they are more apt to spark the passion and interest for others. Even their lectures will be more engaging.
