Turban Waves Screening

So much of education comes down to speed.

Timing.

How do I get ahead? How do find time to teach while I teach to the test? How can I find time to slow down? To go faster? We might even imagine schools as elaborate mechanisms for regulating speed. The classroom chair is a time machine.

The short film Turban Waves allows us to think through the effects of speed and learning, and might slow us down or speed us up a bit during its screening and discussion next Tuesday. If you are around Teachers College, I highly recommend that you make some time for it…
