  2. 2. Against Transmission  Recognize that expertise is overrated  Build a learning environment  Cultivate intellectual curiosity  Develop high-interest activities that scaffold the acquisition of knowledge and skills  Demonstrate that everyone learns from everyone
  3. 3. A Pedagogy of Risk-Taking  Experiment and take risks with a playful pedagogy: Novelty matters  Teach learners, not content or subjects  Make students create media to demonstrate learning  Learn from mistakes and failure
  4. 4. Rigor and Respect  Have high expectations and meet people where they live  Teach people what they need to learn  Humility: Be transparent about my own position, limitations and flaws  Rigor: Provide maximum challenge so that learners can grow as thinkers, do- ers and leaders  Respect: Structure learning activities so that I can learn as much as possible from my students #mystudentsareamazing
