On Friday (1/23/09), the Franklin Institute hosted a panel for Educon 2.1 focused around the question, “What is the Purpose of School?” Here is my video of the panelists opening statements.
The quality isn’t that great. The video was taken with a Flip camera, in the dark. I used the back of a seat to stabilize the camera. Unfortunately, I ran out of space and missed most of Joel Arquillos (Executive Director of 826LA) opening statement while I was busily deleting other video.
