Tamara Konrade and Steve Wyckoff discuss their big picture views on the state of education in America. Check out their mind map of their content made in Mindmeister.

The five areas that Tamara and Steve discuss are:

  • What we teach TO What kids want to know, do, and be like
  • How we teach TO Learning experiences and opportunities
  • How we organize to teach TO How we organize to learn
  • Leadership
  • Assessment

Daniel Pink :
Algorithmic: follow a set of established instructions down a single pathway to one conclusion.
Heuristic: No algorithm exists, you must experiment and devise novel solutions.

McKinsey and Company estimates that …
70% of jobs being created in America are heuristic in nature
30% of jobs being created in America are algorithmic in nature.


Remarkable Chatter … our first episode

Over at Remarkable Chatter we’ve launched a series of podcast shows. Here’s the first official podcast that Tamara Konrade and I did. Enjoy.

Remarkable Chatter is both a podcast show and a network. The podcast is a weekly show hosted by Tamara Konrade and Steve Wyckoff. They discuss educational issues and trends, and interview creative, innovative and highly effective educators. In addition they interview non-educators who contribute the our knowledge of the world and trends which effect education.

The Remarkable Chatter network is a collection of podcast shows hosted by innovative, creative and highly effective educators with insights and knowledge that can benefit every educator. We will continue to add new shows as we discover new and interesting shows done by educators around the world.
