I am presenting on July 29, 2011, at 14:00 Mountain Standard Time (UTC-6).
My presentation is titled: You say you want this, so then why are you doing that? Here's the description:
If we can agree that there is a good chunk of the population that hated their time in school, then we need to think about how we can make school a little less like school. If the consensus among educators and parents is that we want lifelong learners then we need to play a little game called "You say you want this, so then why are you doing that?"If you're comfortable with engaging in a little cognitive dissonance while rethinking school, then I hope you can join me for this session.
Here is a quick 2 minute introduction to my presentation:
