EdTechTalk: 21st Century Learning #35
A Conversation with June Ahn
The Research Behind Learning and Teaching
March 6, 2007

This week we discussed learning and teaching with June Ahn, Ph.D student, focusing on Urban Education at USC.

We will be discussed learning and teaching and how educational research relates to the classroom.  We spend a fair amount of time discussing Sir Ken Robinson's TED Talks presentation that asks whether we are educating our students to be college professors. 

June blogged about our conversation here

Are the show topics posted in advance? If so, where? What is the next show's topic (#36)

Thanks!

Thanks guys for the great chat.  Here are some notes after listening to our conversation again:

 1.  Breakthrough Collaborative Locations: http://breakthroughcollaborative.org/aboutus/locations.html

I believe I said Riverdale, but it is Town School.

2.  In our talk about an effort-based philosophy versus an aptitude-based philosophy of Education... I was inspired by this article:

3.  I will try to find the articles on expertise that I mentioned in our talk and post again.
