Courtesy of my good friend and Tucson neighbor, Bob Pearlman, (whose website is a must-visit resource for everyone in 21st century learning), it is great to share with you the above video featuring President Obama’s visit to New Tech Manor in Texas.

As regular readers may recognize, I’ve been a fan and advocate for the quality of the New Tech program for five years: it is great to see it get this recognition and admiration from the President.

This video does a great job interweaving Obama’s speech to the students and his visit to their classrooms. ¬† This is authentic learning, hands on, engaged, challenging, rigorous, collaborative, meaningful.
