James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Education is about delivery?

Now this is interesting!

TV and education do go hand in hand right?

Some will argue that only some TV is educational.

Other are against TV as a crutch or attention leech.

Nickelodeon is onto something.

With the July 1 introduction of a line of Team Umizoomi Preschool Math Kits, produced internally and pegged to the Nick Jr. math-based show of the same name, the company said it was moving more squarely into the educational realm. “We have never been that loud and proud about it as now,” said Cyma Zarghami, Nickelodeon’s president and chief executive.

No longer are we talking passive education linkages with entertainment we are talking a full on marriage.

And I say ABOUT TIME.

How do we do this for all levels of schooling and all courses?

Can we also tie in Facebook and YouTube?

Our youth are digital natives and out education is playing catch up, and running well behind.

Change can only be good right?
