Fred, Flipboard, Claudio Zavala discussed on Flipboard EDU Podcast


Released from that cookie cut off. Curriculum, I really gotta do this because there's a whole group of students who need more stimulus. I feel that they've then we gotten when we were growing up. And so this hungry group of students who come with their minds already ready. It seems like sometimes we're losing them really early and I just want to know what you think about that Fred is just is that me or are you saying the same thing? No, I think it just boils down to high-stakes testing the ends up being College admissions and vote counts and things or the higher you go up to the high school just focusing on grade, but I think I do think the issue starts earlier than high school. I did think it fourth fifth grade middle school where we're losing a lot of kids where I really think middle school should be the part of what we have the most fun project. We're doing the coolest thing seventh grade science should be wage than anybody ever did I think and a lot of that probably comes down to our following the curriculum of especially right now in this time. Are we trying to do the same thing? We've always done cuz that's not going to work log. Oh, yes, that's not going to work like stream for 45 minutes with the most compliant student. Even that's not working anymore. Okay, we gotta start thinking about getting students to Choice giving them a voice breaking things down to the small chunks consumable chicken nugget provided little extra dipping sauces around where they going to use those tools and they'll be sparked. They'll be rushed. I think it's listening to Claudio man. I can just tell that he's or gas. We okay with trying to the new like right away. He's curious is the Curious guy who wants to learn something new to do something cool. I think everybody has that in providing that opportunity to open that up some that we lose sight of pretty quickly education. I have one class that provided that and that that redirected my entire life to what I'm doing now, like after I did that and I experienced that immediately was like I want to do that for other life. That's why we got into education that one class. So I'm hoping some of the things that we're doing open it up the windows for Market excellent could talk to you guys all night, simply because you walk your talk and walk Anybody wants to just show improve what you do?
