How would this play at Yale?

January 16, 2013

I thought about just posting the following video on its own, but wasn’t sure whether readers’ reactions would be the same as mine. It was written by Ernesto Lara and produced by Jake Scott (see 2 Pi: Rhymes And Radii, NPR).

College students probably wouldn’t find this as appealing as would an eighth grader, but it’s very well put together. The explanation is concise and clear, the main points are repeated for emphasis, and it moves along at a god pace. So what’s my point? Maybe once in a while we should be a little less serious and take walk on the right side of the brain.

Tip o’ the hat to Ben Rimes, The Tech Savvy Educator.

    I’ve been talking a walk on the right side of the brain for so long now that it’s almost a pain when I have to go back to fill out expense reports or take care of other administrative duties🙂

    I’m really glad that you found this to be of interest, it really speaks to the growing ed reform movement in teachers’ classrooms that connect to “play” and building understanding through connections, rather than just data points.
