    Learning by Doing (directors cut)

    Arguably the most natural and powerful form of learning is through experience, or more precisely through reflection on doing. Also called experiential learning, it’s what prima ballerinas do after their performance at the national opera. But it also happens to boys that are sad because their father got angry when they played football in the living room. By the age of one, we all had our own painful encounter with experiential learning when we tried to walk, failed, fell and cried like, well a baby… And even though this was an unpleasant and discouraging exercise that lasted for months in the end we all made it. How is that possible?…

    Microsoft Education: A Complete Solution

    [MUSIC] Once there was a school that wanted a better way to bring teachers and students together to collaborate, explore, and boost outcomes.
