Medina rocks!

As an educator of 19 yrs, I am constantly searching for ways to improve instruction. Utilizing the "Rules" as Medina describes works! Sharing his video & iTunesU casts with students (even 6th Graders) has had an even greater effect. My only wish...a version for adolescence complete with workbook (diet diary & sleep log). Hint to teachers: reviewing rules 5 & 6 has virtually eliminated laborious study of spelling/vocabulary!

no captions

unfortunate that this is not captioned for the pleasure and edification of the deaf and others wh use captions.

Inquiry Based Learning

After viewing the whole spot, I realized he was describing Inquiry Based Learning- the subject of an NSF grant I worked on a few years ago :) Good stuff! Teaching children how to explore and learn through that exploration. The lecture hall has a place, but inquiry learning is where it's at!
