I was fascinated by Dr. Tae’s, a physics professor at Northwestern University, presentation on what needs to happen to transform how we teach and learn.  He looked at this question from the perspectives of higher and secondary education.  He compared the type of teaching and learning that goes on in traditional setting with the teaching and learning that goes on in activities like skateboarding.  He raises good questions  and provides some provocative answers.  Basically, he is challenging us to rethink how we structure school.    

Let me know what you think of his ideas.
