Keynotes from Building Learning Communities

Every summer Alan November and his team host the Building Learning Communities conference in Boston. I recently learned that some of the keynotes from this past summer's conference are now available to view on Vimeo. If you have some time this weekend, I recommend watching one or two of them. I've embedded Michael Wesch's keynote below.

You may have heard me mention Michael Wesch in the past in reference to the video A Vision of Students today which was produced by some of his students.

Technology Integration - Myths and Opportunities

Late last week I came across this great video while reading the comments on a post by Angela Maiers. The video features Alan November discussing the myths and opportunities of using technology in the classroom. In the video Alan mentions how there needs to be a paradigm shift by educators from the model of teacher centered curriculum to student centered curriculum and how that shift can happen with proper technology integration practices. The video is thought provoking and well worth thirteen minutes of your time.
