I put this in the Beyond Education area because I feel we need to look at things outside of traditional education including non traditional types of education. I hope you are as inspired by this video as I have been.
This video has been something I have shown in my classes especially TIPS, Technology Innovation Problem Solving. TIPS is all about solving real world problems, pushing boundaries, and making a difference. This video has always elicited a great discussion from my students about what schools should and could be. We need much more flexible schools with real world experiences.
At the time of this talk, Logan was only 13. How many 13 year olds do you know who could give a speech like that in front of a huge crowd? If we can see past all of the initiatives, testing, RTI, ACT, and so forth and boil down education to what we all know it needs to be, we could really make a difference.
Please share this video out if you think it might make someone think!!
