Marc Prensky keynote - now in full
Having published what I thought was the full podcast of Marc Prensky taken last month, I found out from Will that it was cut off halfway through. So get your Quicktime or video iPod ready: here is the full version of his motivating presentation with visuals. You might also be interested in Will's thoughts on the first 28 minutes 12 seconds. Hopefully, he'll listen to the rest and continue his commentary ;-)
I also wonder now how many teachers really are making an effort to know their students and create engagement. These are the two main points of Marc's keynote, but even yesterday some colleagues were scepetical about using the Da Vinci code to learn. Is trying to find a way to use this and all the other things that our teens are keen about uneducational and invalid or are some of us just someone trying to understand what makes the kids tick?
