Will Richardson's TED Talk
I am a fan of Will Richardson and enjoyed his TED Talk. At first I thought that Will was going to promote his upcoming book! He goes on to describe the crisis in the U.S. in education. Test scores, firing teachers, common core, waiting for Superman, increased funding, standardized teaching, scripted teaching, teaching to the test, ear bud teaching, schools as test prep, 2 billion teachers, re-envision schools, deep inquiry, collaboration, great teaching, political commitment.
Learners will inherit the earth!
