This is one of those 18 minute experiences that can really shift your thinking about the future of learning. I am a huge fan of TEDtalks, and this one, by the founder of TED, is no exception. "What Gutenberg did for writing, online video can now do for face-to-face communication." http://blog.ted.com/2010/09/14/who-let-this-guy-on-the-ted-stage/ A few of us watched this earlier this afternoon in the Edutopia offices and chatted a bit afterward. If online video is a way to expedite the quality and quantity of teaching via online learning, and teaching becomes a more decentralized profession, what do schools look like? How do we maintain quality/standards?
