This is a TEDx video of Seth Godin asking the question that just doesn’t get asked enough, “what is school for?”. I hadn’t seen this video until now, though I did read his book, Stop Stealing Dreams, last year. Any teacher that puts at least some of these ideas into action in their work will be pushing the envelope, I think, in a very positive away. What do you think?

In leiu of that, I’m going to take a crack at implementing each of these steps, in at least one small way, in my teaching. I’ll report back on how it goes.

Special call out to Raspberry Pi users. Are you teaching with these?
