Did you catch Michael H. Levine’s TEDxAtlanta speech back in May? In light of the fact that the event was entitled “Re: Learn” we thought it deserved a second look. In his eighteen minute talk, Michael shares three powerful trends in digital media that are revolutionizing learning. View his speech here.
The TEDxAtlanta experience was a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate how communities can mobilize to translate innovation research, and new designs for learning into action. Convened by the leading design studio in the region, Unboundary, and bringing together over 100 leaders in education, technology, policy, media and design, the session demonstrated the power local leaders have to inspire new thinking and to spread the new ideas that matter most for children in a global and digital age
While you may enjoy this talk, the Center is going to walk the community mobilization walk. At the Cooney Center’s next leadership forum, that will take place in Los Angeles on March 15-16, 2011, we will be inviting teams of leaders from communities around the country who are ready to develop “breakthrough learning plans” that we hope will be models for the nation. Let us know if you have great ideas you would like us to help spread.
