Meet Chris Lehmann, Principal of the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, PA. Lehmann is a interesting guy – he started out as a High School English teacher and technology coordinator. Over the years, his abiding interest in and thoughtful blog (Practical Theory: A View From the Classroom) about new technologies applied to teaching and learning has put him in the national spotlight. On 8.20.09 he gave a talk at the FCC National Broadband Planning Workshop in Washington, DC. The blog entry I’ve linked you to includes the ustream video of his talk as well as his notes.
I found his talk inspiring. I particularly appreciated his very well articulated point, that if all we do with new broadband technologies is find a more efficient way to deliver content, we are missing the boat. What do you think?
