This is a great show. I feel like I say that a lot, but when you have a national speaker like Hap Aziz, someone at the intersection of tech, education, and software, it’s an opportunity to learn more. The more you know! Just like they say!
Hap has a lot of irons in the proverbial fire, and he may have a blacksmith working on one of them in his Historical Williamsburg Living Narrative project. As he develops this educational game, he shares that the narrative – the story – is the most important element.
If you want to keep up with Hap, follow him on Twitter and make sure you bookmark his blog. Here are a couple of my favorite posts:
- Teaching What to Learn and Learning How to Teach
- The Power of Pretend
- The Significance of Experiencing Learning
