TED Radio Hour - Building a Better Classroom

"There's a terrible tendency to confuse raising standards with standardizing." — Sir Ken Robinson

We know getting a good education is important, but does the current model nurture real learning? Here, we look at powerful ideas on how to change education: flipping classrooms, rethinking lesson plans and re-imagining the role of teacher and student.

What do you think promotes learning in the classroom? Find out what Southern Education Desk reporter Dan Carsen has discovered in his reports for WBHM. And each week, Dan sits down with WBHM's Tanya Ott for an interview on education in Alabama. These regular chats span topics as wide-ranging as the education beat itself. Weapons on campus, creationism in public schools ... nothing is off limits. In addition to all Dan's work, all the Carsen-Ott interviews are available in the same place, right here.

And don't forget, WBHM wants to know your diagnosis of on this and the other programs playing during The Radio Clinic. Share your thoughts by commenting below or on Facebook and Twitter. And when you do, thanks!

The TED Radio Hour, is coming to WBHM/WSGN every night this week at 7 p.m. followed by On Being at 8 and Tuxedo Junction presented in cooperation with Samford University’s WVSU 91.1 FM at 9.

Please give us your honest opinions on the new programs. What did you like? What did you not like? And, if you've got the time, tell us why, too. Once we've got the community's "diagnosis," it will help WBHM write a prescription for change!
