I'm currently in the process of re-writing one of my Graduate Diploma courses for a pre-service teaching program we teach at my university and came across a video of George Lucas discussing effective learning and how it engages school students. The video is on edutopia so I expect that many of you may have already seen it, but I embed it here in my Blog for those who have not yet had the privilege of hearing Lucas talk about a not so new paradigm in education.
I use this approach in my classes, on-campus and online and it just works brilliantly.
Is it a silver bullet? It's very likely.
