Doesn't put me to sleep -- Jay Mathews
4.9 starsI'm not so sure about the rope pulling example. It's easier to pull on a rope if its far end is slack. Otherwise, it's like pulling on a hemp-covered rigid pipe.A better example:Will four administrators and a teacher dig a ditch as fast as their individual abilities suggest? Or will total productivity reduce with the addition of each administrator?That's the only nit I'd pick with the video. Our nation would be better off with more Dan Willinghams. Thanks!
Oh, I couldn't agree more with the points made in the video -- it's yet one more example (the utter drivel about "multiple intelligences" leaps to mind) where educators with minimal deep training in science, neuroscience, psychology, or frankly much else, derive specious conclusions from research they don't really understand and try to make it into school policy.
