Community Presentation – Diane Levin
September 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Diane Levin will present a talk called Beyond Remote Controlled Childhood – Creating Balance in a Media Age.
Diane Levin writes: [I discuss this topic] “out of my deep concern over the extreme misfit I am seeing between so many of the early childhood school reforms currently underway and who the young children of today really are.”
“That is, as young children are controlled more and more by media and technology—what I call “Remote Controlled-Childhood”—they have a hard time constructing knowledge through the process described in the quote below. But instead of giving children what they need, today’s education policy makers are responding by mandating remote-controlled approaches to teaching and learning—rote teaching of easily testable isolated facts.”
