 Progressive Education with Alfie Kohn | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 1880

In this episode, best-selling author Alfie Kohn shares his research on education, human behavior and parenting and why we must challenge "traditionalism" with a more "progressive" model of education that eliminates letter grades, home work, standardized testing and an unhealthy focus on competition between students. Instead, Kohn advocates for a more "student-centered" approach in which cooperative learning allows schools to move away from data-driven instructional methods to a more authentic assessment of student learning.

 Empowerment Education with Marc Prensky | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 1812

In this episode, Marc Prensky, who coined the terms "Digital Native" and "Digital Immigrant”, shares new perspectives on how Empowerment Education and Real-World Learning could be the tipping point for reimagining our school systems. Prensky advocates for creating two separate tracks in education - an Academic Track and an Accomplishment Track - that can operate as two equal systems in a School-Within-A-School concept. In this model, Prensky says that PBL should not just be about Project-Based Learning, but rather Project-Based Accomplishment that gives students the opportunity to dream big and become engaged in real-world projects that can make the world a better place.
