As we slip into summer at TTT, we invite you to be reminded of the importance of starting with youth voices when we consider what to do next as educators. This week on http://edtechtalk.com/ttt at 9PM ET / 6PM PT / World Times http://goo.gl/7JEsR our guests will be:
Our conversation will be about how important it is to listen to students, and on David and Charlie’s methods of doing that. David Loitz writes:
- David Loitz, a passionate lover of education, film, basketball, food and life. He is currently working towards his Masters in Holistic Elementary Education at Goddard College. He writes and organizes at Adventures In Learning and on the Cooperative Catalyst, @dloitz .
- Charles Kouns, @Penthias, the Founding Steward of Imagining Learning, an educator and the father of three. Imagining Learning is creating a national portrait of young people’s wisdom on the reinvention of education.
- David and Charlie have invited a few students to join us as well.Charlie’s focus is in helping to bring the voices and visions of youth people to a national stage. He is both a teacher and an visionary. He is a dear friend and mentor. He created Imagining Leaning four years ago, and has traveled up and down the west coast and as far as New Zealand to host listening session with groups of young people.Please join us if you can. Let us know what you are thinking about the wisdom of youth. We’ll see you at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt at 9PM ET / 6PM PT / World Times http://goo.gl/7JEsR —
Paul Allison, Monika Hardy, and Chris Sloan
