Exciting Learning

Stephen Parker’s Don Aitkin Lecture prompted me to think about exciting learning.

Stephen used two videos in his talk.

The first was a Ken Robinson video.

The total views for this video were 509 (morning of 9 December).

The second video was Live Augmented Reality for National Geographic.

The total views for this video were 48,687 (morning of 9 December).

Whilst thinking about the videos in Stephen’s talk I received a link from Michael de Percy to this video.

It has received 242,053 views (morning of 9 December).

I am thinking that the downhill journey shown in the third video is a great metaphor for exciting learning and contemplating the partnerships that learners and teachers (guides) can develop.
