My Opinions on Curriculum

I spent a little time with Dr. Pfister's Principles of Curriculum Improvement course at Illinois State University.

Here is the ustream — if you forward the first one to minute 5 and then it gets started. Oh, and I can't believe it — I'm actually putting myself up without my makeup. Oh well.

There are some important thoughts I have on curriculum, how to influence teachers to use technology, and how I WISH things would change. Their questions really got me going!!!!

Oh, and the volume is a bit loud so you'll want to turn it down.

And the stream dropped and this is the end of the show.

Here I talk about bureaucracy, some thoughts on failing schools… just opinions. I really got a bit hyper.
