Here's a video that I enjoyed from NECC. It's called Have You Been Paying Attention and suggests some ways that we might make learning more meaningful to our students. It reminded me of the Shift Happens video that is certainly worth a view if you haven't seen it yet. There are newer versions of this one that are more PC with legal music but I still like this one best. There's a wiki to promote further discussion too.
And while I am at it I might as well link a podcast of the Closing Keynote address by Dr. Tim Tyson. I'll stop now.
