Education Nation: Six Leading Edges of Innovation in our Schools
Dr. Milton Chen, senior fellow and executive director emeritus at The George Lucas Educational Foundation (GLEF), will present ideas from his new book, Education Nation, and discuss how nations and school systems need to focus on the growing edges of innovation related to curriculum, technology, and learning time/places. These edges include the shifting roles of teachers and students as teachers form teaching teams with other experts and students take on more responsibility for their own learning. He will show examples of these innovative practices from Edutopia.org, GLEF's media brand, and its Web archive of documentaries, available for free download from iTunes.
