Teach Teachers How To Create Magic

Do you have the magic it takes to engage your students? In this TED video, Christopher Emdin suggests that to be a great educator, we need to go beyond theory and content… we need magic. Not hocus-pocus magic, rather the magic it takes to transport someone from their current reality into the world of engaged learning. He says, to learn how to create magic, we need to go to where this engagement is happening, and that’s not anywhere near the classroom.
