Episode 70

Scott McLeod of CASTLE provides some tactical case studies about innovative culture in the classroom, and how to adapt to new environments in the age of ubiquitous student technology use. To McLeod, there are 4 big shifts that need to happen:

  1. A focus on low-level, procedural driven education to deeper higher level learning.
  2. Giving kids more agency of their own work.
  3. How do we make schoolwork more authentic and connected to the real-world?
  4. How do we use technology in robust ways to make the first 3 shifts happen?
