Edutopia is highlighting High Tech High’s amazing work with hands-on learning. It feels a lot like what we do in Critical Skills, doesn’t it? One can’t help but wonder if, like any really, really good idea, there are lots of folks trying to figure it out at the same time. I was lucky enough to be a part of a book talk last week. A group of us gathered to discuss the Wagner text I mentioned below. I think the most interesting thing for me was the universal agreement that this way of doing school- hands on, problem based, rigorous and engaging- was just better. It was delightful- and I’m thrilled to know that my colleagues at the New Hampshire Staff Development Council have agreed to host similar books talks around the state. Interested in hosting your own talk? Let me know and I’ll forward our discussion questions and format your way!
