Teaching is an Art: The Intersection between Relationship, Curiosity, and Content

Recently I was contacted by Microsoft’s Anthony Salcito about doing a follow up about my work with the flipped classroom. When he contacted me I had just come off of a twitter conversation with Kwame Brown (@drkmbrown) where we discussed what good teaching was all about. I made the point, that good teaching has always been about building relationships between teachers and students. Dr. Brown pushed back and said this: “how about we acknowledge #edu is the INTERSECTION between relationship, curiosity, and content?” That tweet has rung true for me as I have thought through what I believe about education. Good teaching starts with relationship, but then we need to add curiosity and content. Watch this short video as I explain how this can and should work in today’s current educational climate. Anthony also blogged about this on his website.

So, what do you think?
