Teach, Tyson, teach!

I enjoyed this video on Physics concepts simply because it was not delivered in the usual way.

There was no blackboard, no talking head, no PowerPoint.

Instead there were conversations, stories, interviews, anecdotes, and mini lessons.

If there were questions from a learner, they could be dealt with independently or in a classroom context. The questions or curiosity would be sparked by something said during the staged event or from an experience. The need to learn would not come from a fixed curriculum or paper test requirements.

In other words, the need know would drive the learning. The series of tests, all devoid of context, would not. This is the new and better way to teach.
