Movie Club

I'm a teacher in an after-school program in Philadelphia's Chinatown. Last year I started what I called a "Movie Club", where I and about twenty 3rd + 4th graders made a short movie. I'm getting ready to repeat the process this coming Summer, and would love to hear from people with similar experiences.

Creativity in Education

Here's some stuff about creativity in education. It's a talk done by this guy Ken Robinson for the TED conference. I've always thought that the many of the problems in our education system today are due to a pervasive attitude grown out of old ideals. I think this is kind of what he is talking about.

Here's the video.

Here's a bio of Ken Robinson.
