Ernesto Sirolli: Want to help someone? Shut up and listen!

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.
