Playing to Our Strengths: Neurodiversity & Education | Christy Hutton

The new generation of education has to re-prioritize on the fact that all of the data we used to memorize is now at our fingertips in smart-phones and what society needs is for people to think–differently, uniquely, creatively, critically, and freely! This talk is about ways that this can be achieved in the secondary schools using neurodiversity and how it plays out in a traditional educational system. Society is giving up on many students with the potential to be great thinkers and contributors if we are simply willing to let them play to their strengths.
