Join Nick Cusumano and Danielle Filas as they welcome Rushton Hurley. Rushton will discuss ways of getting the creative best out of students. He will share about NextVista's eduvideo and service video contests, and its English Language video library project.
Rushton is the founder and executive director of Next Vista for Learning, which houses a free library of videos by and for teachers and students at NextVista.org. His graduate research at Stanford University included using speech recognition technology with beginning students of Japanese in computer-based role-playing scenarios for developing language skills. In the 1990s his work with teenagers at a high school in California led him to begin using internet and video technologies to make learning more active, helping him reach students who had struggled under more traditional approaches.
