Ken Morrison's insight:

I'm a big fan of PBL (Project Based Learning.  I first learned about Tony Vincent when I was in graduate school when we were talking about Palm Pilots in education..  Ironically, he started teaching where my brother currently teaches.  He followed the sun down the Phoenix.  I always enjoy his content and ideas.

"The term “project-based learning” gets tossed around a lot in discussions about how to connect students to what they’re learning.

TEDxBloomington -- Gever Tulley -- "The Path to Brightworks"

This week I learned that the phrase, "to muck around' came from the name 'muckers'. This is not a negative term. It was the name that Mr. Thomas Edison gave to his top engineers. He knew the value of exploratory learning. Last week, I heard Henry Jenkins challenge MIT to make a statue for the students who invented video games in the spare time between classes. Gever Tulley shares the mindset of these great men.

Five Ways to Bring Innovation Into the Classroom | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway.  Simply giving videos to watch at home is not flipping.  That is rearranging.

1. INFUSE PASSION INTO LEARNING.

2. TRY SOMETHING NEW.

3. CONSIDER THE FLIPPED CLASSROOM MODEL.

4. TAP INTO STUDENTS’ IDEAS.

5. CONSIDER THE FUTURE SCHOOL DAY.
