TEDxRedmond: Lessons From Children - Celebrating Our Youngest Teachers

Posted on November 24, 2010 at 3:30am 0 Comments

By Ardith Davis Cole, teacher, author, literacy consultant

When I was six I taught my neighbor who was seven to ride a bike. Years later, as a teacher of six-year-olds, I watched as my students taught others in their class. They even participated in conferences with me; thus, our audiences learned lessons from children. Now, the Internet allows viewers all over the world to witness the teaching ability of students. We can see for ourselves what… Continue

The new Science projects you added are a terrific example of upgrading the traditional "science project" to include a presentation of findings and conclusions to an audience. It is impressive that students in elementary school are learning to post findings for peer review.

Will you please share with your students that I learned from their findings? I'd never thought about making my own lightening! Now, I want to try! I liked the experiment that discovered that melted cheese did not mold as quickly an non-melted cheese! Really, I liked every one of them! Thanks for sharing these science projects. I'll share them with our teachers in Georgia and Alabama!

Hi Jack,

With your interest in Education Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.

Hi Jack,

I'm sending out messages to everyone I know right now, and this classroom20 network is no exception. My name is Marco Morales; I am a 20 year old college student from Olin College of Engineering. I am a part of a group of 6 Olin College students (we're in Needham,MA, and engineering students) who has taken a year off to work on an education related project. I found you when I searched for middle schools on classroom20, and since our project is specific to middle schools, I thought you might be interested! Our project is called AlightLearning, and this is our "short" project description:

Under the assumption that within ten years, the landscape of modern education will have fully integrated what we now define as new classroom media: video, online collaboration, open source curriculum and other web tools, we hope to pioneer a web software tool that acts as a platform for this new media, bringing the power of the web and its tools to students, teachers and parents in a secure, comfortable and innovative environment. Our goal is to have our free software at a pilot middle school by April 15th, 2008, continuing to develop and coordinate with our users to create a product that other schools want to pilot and use at their schools, while allowing individual teachers to implement this tool in their own classroom.

Our project, titled Alight Learning, is currently trying to win an idea competition on Ideablob.com You can find us at http://ideablob.com/3975. We would love your support in the form of a vote within the next couple days, but more importantly we'd love your feedback and comments. Our description on Ideablob is short, and even the one above hardly gets many of the issues we would like to take a stab at solving, but at least it's a start.

Feel free to email me back, check out alightlearning.com, anything you like!
