Overall, the Pecha Kucha strategies are:
Barry’s keynote brought up a variety of points to ponder regarding education and choice. He referred to the book “Predictably Irrational” by Dan Ariely (which I am grabbing from the library today). Human nature always intrigues me and sets me into deep thought, so when Barry sent out the thought of “the power of free” and why do we (U.S.) make people pay for education? The funny thing is I have thought about this before. It certainly makes me angry that if I wanted to get a Ph.D I’d have to basically win the lottery or live in a cardboard box and eat pb&j for a long time. I digress; let’s get back on track with the keynote. The next idea to scratch our heads about is: “Why do we ask students to buy books (content)?” Why is it not already included inside the ‘course?’ Good question.
