TEDxStudioCityED was a powerful event with a select group of top leaders on blending self-regulation, technology, and education. The organizers did a masterful job pulling together the conference. I was thrilled and touched to be included in the line-up of speakers, and delighted to tie everything together in my talk.
Here are the key three concepts underlying "TEDxStudioCityED: Blending Self-Regulation, Technology, and Education":
In order for individuals to acquire new learning, they must be in a calm, steady state. Our children require strategies to self-soothe, calm themselves, and operate at an optimum level of arousal. TEDxStudioCityED brings together professionals from diverse disciplines to elucidate the latest advances in this area.
Education must be re-fashioned in order to prepare students for the world they will graduate to. Incorporating digital books and textbooks, realizing the benefits of Facebook and online gaming, and leveraging web distribution to disseminate classroom teaching as widely as possible – all important aspects of aligning educations methods with technological advances.
The days of teachers having all the information and imparting it to students orally is over. In the inquiry-based approach, student interest drives the process and the teacher shifts from the sage on the stage into more of a coaching role.
