What's the Big Idea?

In which Dan explores concept-based education and how it can drive deeper learning and critical thinking in the classroom and beyond. Relying on the work of Lynn Erickson and Julie Stern, Dan breaks down what we mean by 'concept-based' learning (2:10) and how it's different from the more common topical approach found in schools. Then Dan interviews Trevor Aleo, an English teacher making concept-based teaching and learning a reality in his high school English class (7:30). As always we welcome comments and questions on Twitter @BigIdeaEd
