I think this video is a very cool real-world version of the philosophy of Differentiated Instruction. The part of DI that I really like is “Knowing the Learner” and then Engaging in “Responsive Teaching”. On the home page of this blog is a quotation about harnessing what already resides inside a student, which I think echoes the idea of passion in people that Ernesto Sirolli speaks of in this video. Listening and responding. So simple.
