Lessons in technology with Lenny Kravitz

Film by Mathieu BItton / @candytman

Who would have thought this cool music clip from New Orleans would have anything to do with teaching technology? I just thought I was going to be watching a choir. Not so. Watch Lenny Kravitz. He looks, he engages and he looks some more. He is taking in what is there and how he can connect with it. He then takes over the drums and all of a sudden they have a stronger beat, the choir lifts and the guitarist can rise up to the level of talent and confidence he has. Lenny Kravitz then starts singing. The drummer comes back and is drumming so much more confidently and ,as Lenny Kravitz sings, the choir finds a strong, clear voice and can really show who they are and what they are capable of. The guitarist takes heart from all of this and his talent just shines. Lenny Kravitz is a teacher. He doesn’t have to stand there and teach. He can absorb what the learning gaps are, lead by example and drive the lessons home by being interactive. The fact that Matthew Bitton filmed it and shared it on YouTube means we all get to share this. No one has set up a lesson, performance standards, lessons objectives. This is an intuitive lesson. With technology , you can do just that. You can lead by example. You can observe your class and see where their learning gaps are and show them as you use and suggest different technology options how to grow and become more confident with their technology use. Students pick up very quickly things  you are just doing or using. The clip is four years old and yet it is now doing the rounds of FaceBook. It has meaning and for a lot of people it just lifts their day. That’s what teaching does. It  means something and frees others to explore their interests and talents.
