Join me Thursday, February 28th, for a live conversation with return guest Roger Schank to talk about his book Teaching Minds: How Cognitive Science Can Save Our Schools, why MOOCs won't save schools or the world, and why everything you think you know about education is wrong.
That's a tall order, and Roger is certainly capable of delivering on all of it-- plus much more. Roger is one of the world's leading visionaries in artificial intelligence, learning theory, cognitive science, and the building of virtual learning environments. He is CEO of Socratic Arts, a company whose goal is to design and implement learning-by-doing, story-centered curricula in schools, universities, and corporations. A fuller, and somewhat amazing, bio is here.
