Sheninger: Schools That Work For Kids [VIDEO 15:19]

Eric Sheninger: “School is the exact opposite of the real world. School does everything to suck suck out the passion, the creativity…” The problem lies with us. Schools are set up to work well for the adults. We need schools that work well for kids, if we truly want them to be successful in the real world. In this 15 minute video from TEDxBurnsvilleED, Sheninger outlines five things we can do, including bringing social media into instruction, developing Bring Your Own Device technology policy, create maker spaces, and provide personalized learning for students. Where to begin? Listening to our students. Developing student voice is key in transforming education.
