As a follow up to yesterday's post about the flipped classroom, here are "Lessons Worth Sharing" which is TED-Ed’s idea of sharing presentations (lectures? sort of) on great ideas.
Probably some of you already use a TED talk with your students. The example mentioned in the video promo below is "Just How Small is an Atom?" By Jon Bergmann. More videos that were flipped by teachers are being posted all the time.
One thing I liked about this particular version of his talk is that the video of Robinson actually speaking is replaced by an animated version of someone drawing (very well) on a white board to illustrate Robinson's points. I ask them to answer some questions based on their viewing at home the 12 minute video.
Robinson assumes you know this - What is a paradigm?
Why does he believe that we need to change public education today?
What is his opinion about ADHD?
How would he group students in classes?
How would he compare divergent thinking versus creativity?
Explain his example of geniuses in kindergarten.
How would Robinson compare/contrast cheating versus collaboration?
Summarize what you feel are his 3 main arguments.
How does having the visualization of his talk change the way we hear/see his talk? Is this visual thinking?
