Empowering Young Learners; Stephen Heppell

In this film, Stephen Heppell¬†describes his vision for schools, meeting with kids at the ‘Be Very Afraid’ conference, and exploring ideas for classroom design in a technology pilot school.

I am especially pleased with his sound-bites, like ¬†… “every turned-off device is a turned-off child” and “the death of education, but the dawn of learning.”

The other videos in the series are also worth spending a few minutes watching – ‘21st Century Education‘ by the Mobile Learning Institute.

In the ‘Education (Educating?) the Mobile Generation’ Elliott Soloway is very clear when he says we ought to be updating our teaching methods from the ‘learning what … ” approach to “learning how …”.
