Teach teachers how to create magic

Teach teachers how to create magic | Transformational Teaching, Thinking, and Technology | Scoop.it
What do rap shows, barbershop banter and Sunday services have in common? As Christopher Emdin says, they all hold the secret magic to enthrall and teach at the same time — and it’s a skill we often don't teach to educators. The science advocate (and cofounder of Science Genius B.A.T.T.L.E.S. with the GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan) offers a vision to make the classroom come alive.

Keaton Toscano's curator insight, April 13, 9:46 PM

Resources are not only becoming more available, but more applicable as well! Maybe the way of the future is not sitting in a classroom, but that would require more self-directed learners... and there is a lack of such in my experience, at least in the commonly recognized academic fields. Everyone has their own interests, whether inside or outside the classic realm of academia, but maybe that's a distinction worth respecting.
