PBS: 21st century learners

When I hear the threat that funding will be cut for PBS and NPR my blood boils.  But then I end up glued to the television watching a show on Digital Media on PBS – (CLip below) and my blood REALLY boils. This organization is so important. When I think of everything from Sesame Street at age 3 to this show last week (well past age 3!!!)

But I digress and use the opportunity to discuss an additional issue that is my passion for PBS.  THE MAIN REASON I’M POSTING:

WATCH THIS SHOW. IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO TO FURTHER EDUCATION IN OUR COUNTRY.

If you’re a parent? Forward it to a teacher. Figure out how you can use technology to help your child do their homework and learning PAST using GOOGLE. If you don’t have kids? Volunteer. Send this to someone. Donate money to programs that bring technology into the schools.

“It is now problem solving that we need to learn – everyone should be able to develop the ability to create and not just consume”.

Watch the full episode. See more Digital Media – New Learners Of The 21st Century.
