Daniel Whitt is a teacher, a digital media specialist, a filmmaker, and a social activist living in Madison, Alabama.  He is Co-Founder/Co-Director of Youth Converts Culture.

TTT#322 Reclaiming the public in public education (IDEA) w/ Allie Desmet, Beth Sanders, Sam Chaltain, Gregory HIll - 11.07.12


68:14 minutes (46.85 MB)

Learn more about the Institute for Democratic Education in America (IDEA) democraticeducation.org on this episode of TTT , with our guests:

From the IDEA site:

Democratic education is not a type of school or research-based practice. It isn’t one kind of learning program or philosophy. It is a frame. It’s a way of gathering together a vast and powerful set of ideas, philosophies of learning, research, school models, teaching practices, policies, and community visions so that a powerful story can be told that reclaims the “public” in public education—that is, education owned by all of us.

This is an ongoing discussion on TTT and we invite you to join us any Wednesday evening to reclaim the public in public education. Come on over to TTT edtechtalk.com/ttt at 9PM ET/6PM PT

Until the nuanced story is clear, truthful and told by and large by those who are experiencing the greatest suffering (ie: young people), the solutions generated will not be the ones our city needs. —Jayeesha Dutta

“People need to have the power to solve their own problems” - Kosta Grammatis
Kosta Grammatis believes if you provide a person with a mobile  device and access to the internet their learning space can be anywhere.  Support a person’s curiosity to question, reason and create within whatever space they are in and their learning can become anything.  Learners of the 21st century need these things: a space, a device, a  connection, a facilitator, a motive. Yet over 5 billion people on this  planet don't have internet access.
