The Hobart Shakespeareans

This is an interesting video from TedEd about a new model in education.

A classroom shouldn’t be about a teacher talking. It should be about students doing. The Hobart Shakespeareans don’t play virtual baseball. They play baseball. They don’t play Guitar Hero and Rock Band. They play the guitar, and they are a rock band. And when these children stay late after school and come in on Saturdays to study Shakespeare, they don’t take a test on Hamlet. They act Hamlet.
