Global Competence with Dr. Yong Zhao
In this episode, Dr. Yong Zhao, a leading voice in the globalization of education, talks about his new book, What Works May Hurt - Side Effects in Education, and why we must stop searching for the panacea to education reform. From his new book, Dr. Zhao says that policymakers often overprescribe solutions to fix education while underestimating the power of kids to create their own changes in a new “personalizable” model for learning. Dr. Zhao also talks about the impact of Steve Jobs and America’s entrepreneurial spirit that has produced a new “black collar” workforce through technology and innovative solutions. He closes by discussing his thoughts on what’s missing in Project-Based Learning and why we must think differently about College and Career Readiness initiatives in our schools. Twitter: @YongZhaoEd.

Progressive Education with Alfie Kohn
In this episode, best-selling author Alfie Kohn shares his research on education, human behavior and parenting and why we must challenge "traditionalism" with a more "progressive" model of education that eliminates letter grades, home work, standardized testing and an unhealthy focus on competition between students. Instead, Kohn advocates for a more "student-centered" approach in which cooperative learning allows schools to move away from data-driven instructional methods to a more authentic assessment of student learning.

Empowerment Education with Marc Prensky
In this episode, Marc Prensky, who coined the terms "Digital Native" and "Digital Immigrant”, shares new perspectives on how Empowerment Education and Real-World Learning could be the tipping point for reimagining our school systems. Prensky advocates for creating two separate tracks in education - an Academic Track and an Accomplishment Track - that can operate as two equal systems in a School-Within-A-School concept. In this model, Prensky says that PBL should not just be about Project-Based Learning, but rather Project-Based Accomplishment that gives students the opportunity to dream big and become engaged in real-world projects that can make the world a better place.
