Archive: Future Of Education, At The Blackboard

More To Life

Perhaps your kids complain about their heavy knapsacks, their smelly lockers and of course that long walk to school. Well some day students may simply turn on their computers in the morning and go to a virtual classroom. But how will that change the culture of education in Ontario? Tune in Wednesday with futurist Richard Worzel and our own education columnist Wili Liberman to discuss learning in the distant and not-too-distant future. Also today: sometimes parenting feels like being between a rock and a hard place. One of those moments may occur if your child asks a question you don't know the answer to, perhaps a question such as, "Where do rocks come from?" Luckily, teachers like Leonard Monticolo know the answer. He is an elementary teacher at Valleyfield Junior School in Toronto. He joins Mary at the blackboard today to teach us about the Rocks and Minerals unit of the Grade 4 curriculum. Show contains on Planet Parent item. Show is phone-in based, and viewers can also participate via email.
