Getting to the true nature of learning in K-12
from Distict Administration Magazine
What if we taught kids how to think, not what to think? That question is the focus of Re:Thinking, a new documentary that inspires educators, politicians and the public to reimagine schools. The film is based on the work of Derek and Laura Cabrera, cognitive scientists who apply systems-based concepts to learning design, leadership and organizational change. Producer and director Deborah C. Hoard spent three years observing schools that practice this approach to learning. She says these educators meet public education requirements while embracing a culture that emphasizes thinking over memorization and sees the individual child not as an empty vessel to be filled but as an adult-in-training.
