  1. “Present our students with opportunities” explains exactly how I feel about this recent viral video. It is an amazing opportunity to take advantage of the engagement (instead of the usual apathy) to educate students about global issues, media literacy, social media, the power of change etc.
    I wrote a blog post about how to use the hype in the classroom here: http://www.reflectiveteacher.com.au/kony2012

  2. Hi George,

    I love that skateboarding video. It was a great representation of assessment to which even non-skateboarders could relate. That is what assessment is all about (or should be about). It isn’t about how long it takes to get there, it’s about getting there. It’s isn’t about grading you on the way, it’s about being able to do it or not. I really enjoyed this video when you posted it first on Twitter. Glad to watch it again.

    We have been so fortunate to have my daughter in a class with a teacher like Kathy Cassidy. I feel connected to what my daughter does in school because her teacher regularly updates her class blog and the students regularly post items on their individual student blogs. It is so exciting to be a large part of my daughter’s education (at home and at school), even though I am never actually AT her school. Karen, my daughter’s teacher, was really looking forward to meeting you when you came last week. It’s unfortunate that she didn’t get to meet and talk with you.

    Thanks for your post and inspiration.
