    Science Must Fall?

    So, um, can I respond to your submission because I wanted to directly respond I was actually thinking about this coming here because I thought that it was going to be one of the cabin questions ‘how do we even start to decolonize science’ because science is true because it is science and, you know, what can you do? And my response to that was: if I personally were committed to enforcing decolonization science as a whole is a product of western modernity and the whole thing should be scratched off. [laughter] Especially in Africa. So if you want a practical solution to how to decolonize science, we’d have to…

    Importance of Video Education in Schools

    (gentle electronic music) – The education system’s completely broken. Sitting in a desk, taking information from one specific source is so incredibly antiquated and then to be able to show that I understand this by filling in a bubble is just laughable at this point in our world. Visual storytelling is the way that’s all gonna be cracked. Chicago actually has the best network of media education in the nation. – Film making allows you to tell a story. A lot of times, people can’t verbally articulate that, but they could tell that story through video. (laughs) That’s so fresh. Like, most of my students are visual learners, so I…

There is literally not an image that adequately shows you what it actually looks like from out there.…
