To celebrate its 125th Anniversary, Stanford hosted a symposium on education and videotaped many of the presentations.
Here are a few of the most useful ones:
Nobel Prize winner Carl Wieman talks about active learning in this video. You can read the contribution he made to my Education Week Teacher column at A Nobel Laureate Writes About Becoming A “Science Coach.” I’m adding it to The Best Research Demonstrating That Lectures Are Not The Best Instructional Strategy.
Travis Bristol “talks about the role of gender in the classroom and the ways to engage boys in the school environment.” You can read his contributions to my Ed Week column at The Teachers of Color ‘Disappearance Crisis’ and Strategies for Recruiting Teachers of Color . I’m adding it to A Collection Of Useful Posts, Articles & Videos On Race & Racism – Help Me Find More.
Carol Dweck talks about a growth mindset. You can read her contribution to my Ed Week column at Classroom Strategies to Foster a Growth Mindset. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Helping Our Students Develop A “Growth Mindset.”
Linda Darling-Hammond “speaks about the need for educators to teach students teamwork, problem-solving and communication skills to prepare them for a rapidly changing future.”
