On Thursday, June 18 at 4:00 pm US-EDT, we recorded the seventh LIVE episode of the new LearningRevolution.com weekly interview series, REINVENTING SCHOOL. If you miss the LIVE show, we post the edited version here by Monday over the weekend.
This week, REINVENTING SCHOOL addressed a difficult question for students, parents, teachers and administrators: the many aspects of hope in the midst of a very challenging time. Hope is connected to reasonable expectations, optimism, temperament, social action, and more. This required sorting out, so we invited several experts from very different domains for our discussion. MK Asante is a filmmaker, author, and professor at Morgan State University and India's MICA Business School in India. Dr. Lara Jana is a pediatrician, educator, and the author of The Toddler Brain: Nurture the Skills Today that Will Shape Your Child’s Tomorrow. Sharon M. Ravitch, Ph.D., is a Professor of Practice at The University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education, and a GIAN Scholar of the Government of India.
