Klingenstein Head’s Program, February 4, 2013, school visit, AVENUES, The World School

A visit to AVENUES, The World School, in Chelsea, provided fodder for our conversations about 21st Century Schools. I spent my time in the Early Childhood Center and thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the language immersion programs. Watching some very talented Mandarin teachers, I was inspired about the possibilities for language immersion instruction in this country.Image

Back in class at Columbia, we had an interesting debate about the work of Clay Christensen and what actually constitutes a disruptive technology in an educational environment!
