Though this blog entry is to showcase Canon’s newest digital-cinema-bad-boy, the Vimeo video within the entry, halfway down the page, is a beautifully-told love story. Great cinematography, great story telling, and jaw-dropping visuals!
To this day I still cringe whenever I remember myself in math class at any grade level. Sure, I cringe with memories of almost all of my classes, but math, ufff.
Dan’s talk makes me want to be in a math classroom like his! Truly!
I love this video for its simplicity, and for how able it is at showcasing a different approach to the common text-book approach to teaching young minds.
I never thought of this before, but creating a support structure for faculty to review their practice in an informal “safe” and nurturing space is a great thing to think about. Usually schools are interested in output, professionalism and practice; the teacher is observed, accounted for by HR and evaluated against class scores and the like.
This practice would give the teacher to interpret their own performance and a group of peers to offer support and a space to celebrate what is good about their individual practice. Worth thinking about when creating an institutional PD program.
