Academic artist Enrique Legaspi grew up singing, skateboarding, and creating. As a teacher, one day he realized, "I'm doing everything I can, I'm staying up late, but I'm producing the same results. What's going on?" Now that he's begun to modify and adapt his teaching to his students' interests, Enrique's students are creating, curating and sharing their work using video and social media -- and it's made all the difference.

Under Secretary at the U.S. Department of Education, Martha Kanter reminds us that Thomas Jefferson's primary public concern was to establish a system of general education to reach every citizenÄbelieving that "whenever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government." Today, as our lauded history of producing the best-educated citizenry in the world is slipping through our fingers, Kanter argues that people need to learn to think critically not only to succeed in their jobs, but to preserve our great democracy.

Jody Lewen, Executive Director of the Prison University Project, explains that fear of vulnerability is often the primary learning challenge for her students, but "getting help" can be taught, patiently, as a concept and a skill to overcome that challenge and transform lives.

In 1999, Dr. Sugatra Mitra placed a computer into a hole in the wall of an urban slum in New Delhi India and watched with a hidden camera to see how children of the slum interacted with this foreign device. His "Hole in the Wall" project, along with subsequent studies, demonstrates that even in the absence of direct input from a teacher, an environment that stimulates curiosity can cause learning through self-instruction and peer-shared knowledge.
