Yoda Fist Pumps Jesus Jones...What We Can Learn from Star Wars Identities



Recently I attended Identities, the Star Wars exhibit.

It was for a better word...the coolest thing ever!

Not a surprise...Lit Maven....

I know...but the thing is...I felt ultra cool with the communication device in my ear. I thought..."I can rock this like no one's business."


If you are not familiar with the exhibit, the communication device that they lend you, picks up audio from the various video displays.  It goes around one ear and has a dial for sound and language selection. It only picks up the audio if you are within range of a monitor.

So you can hop in and out of range. The rest of the exhibit is relatively quiet. 

Just like this scene from Ace Ventura Pet Detective...



Can you imagine this in a school?

Jim Carrey?

No...communication devices....

Imagine....
  • Kids listening to information, in 3-4 minute chunks.
  • Kids choosing the language they listen to.
  • Kids choosing the level of sound.
  • Kids choosing the order of information.
  • Kids mixing, in all ages, to process the information.
Hmmm....I think it is something to ponder...

Lit Maven?...Yoda?...Jesus Jones?...

Yes...OK...so Yoda  is all about..."Do or do not...there is no try."

So I was thinking..."Yoda lives in the now!"

Uh huh...ok Lit Maven....

Who else is all into the now stuff?

Jesus Jones?

Yes....and although this song is ancient...it really speaks to me.
Right here, right now...there is no time in education that I would rather be.

Enjoy!

Until Next Time,



Lit Maven Out!
