Storytelling To Teach Complex Concepts

February 16, 2008 Leave a comment

Here’s a very interesting presentation by Robert Frank, author and economist, where he demonstrates how students learn complex concepts much easier through storytelling. His point is made through a series of interesting examples of how he teaches economics to his students. “Tell the message in a familiar context,” he says. At the very end of the presentation, minute 54:00, he speaks about a parent who read bits of Frank’s book to his 11-year son. Every night, the boy would ask for more, demonstrating that a kid can learn more about economics than a college student.

Enabling the Dreams of Others

January 21, 2008 Leave a comment

I ran across this video of a presentation so compelling and inspiring that I had to share it.  It’s titled Randy Pausch: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams (running 76.5 minutes).

Don’t let the length scare you off. It’s well worth your time to hear and watch the final lecture of the terminally ill, Carnegie Mellon professor. Professor Pausch takes the audience on a journey of his vivid life and career, keenly showing the passion that realized his childhood dreams. He reveals his lessons learned which are practical and universal for any pioneer. He speaks often of the importance of enabling the dreams of others, a topic near to the hearts of parents and teachers. His presentation is fun, inspiring and so full of life that you forget you’re watching a dying man say goodbye to his colleagues and students.
