My upper communication tech classes watched this today and held discussion afterward. We regularly produce media for our website and local TV station so my students asked to try autonomous production work on Fridays with the idea that they will present their media for the following Friday show or show their progress. They already have the brownie party planned out!

I am interested to see what is produced, but at the same time I find it difficult to relinquish control of the production schedule once a week. I consider myself to be very open minded and adaptable to change, so I can see how other teachers or business owners might have a problem with this type of schedule.

I'll post on my blog when we start seeing results.

This is not only important information to know as to merit pay but for student achievement. How do we motivate our students to learn?

This video is a must watch for anyone interested in leadership or just enjoying life on the planet. Thanks so much for posting. There is a summary of Daniel Pink's book "Drive" at DrDougGreen.Com if anyone wants to learn more about motivation. Better yet, just purchase this book. Douglas W. Green, EdD
