The Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) has an engaging video series on its website called “8 x 8” that gives viewers access to the latest thinking on education policy.
“As part of the Bold Ideas & Critical Conversations event on September 19, eight HGSE faculty members were each given eight minutes to discuss research-based ideas that will have a big impact on the field,” the website explains.
It’s like a mini collection of TED talks on education.
The eight faculty members who speak are:
- Karen Brennan, whose research looks at how learning communities can support young people as designers of interactive media
- Howard Gardner – senior director of Harvard’s Project Zero
- Tom Kane – faculty director of the Center for Education Policy Research
- Nonie Lesaux, author of “Turning the Page: Refocusing Massachusetts for Reading Success,” a report commissioned by Strategies for Children
