Detailed bio.
I am still learning
the greatest danger for most of us
I need audience participation, tear down this wall!
the berlin wall, the berling wall
but still in walls, brick walls
they are tweeting and texting
but we need to connect the dots, connect the dots to the real world, and we still teach that way in university, but they are not leaving with critical thinking skills
good professors are trying to break out of the mold, Publishers have curriculum textbooks that are still prominent at our universities, can you connect the dots, learning + work = learning
get our kids ready for the real world, 50% marks and 50% behaviour, Taking a hammer to the bachelor of ed programs, how do I commit to change?, 50 - 50 for higher ed too, I want a 50 - 50 transcript
when you graduate you will have a good understanding of how the real works with the 50 - 50 model, not saying knock down all the walls because we still need theory, because a crisis is looming, part of a crowd to launch a brilliant new learning cycle
