Reading this made me really excited for the future of education. These two teachers have figured out how to use technology to set up two classrooms to engage in Socratic seminar. This idea of "inner circle, outer circle" makes for a meaningful classroom "backchannel" -- especially helpful to those of us who would rather get a root canal than present to the whole class. Really cool!

I had the opportunity to see this film -- Project Happiness -- recently and it's exactly what we need right now. With a relatively small amount of self-awareness, the film posits, we can begin to strengthen our minds against a lot of the negativity and craziness that's in our world today. The filmmaker developed a 7-part curricula series with the help of a number of thought leaders. We'll be running one new lesson a month on Edutopia. Hope you'll join us.
