Math Establishment: Who’s Dan Meyer?

Other: Some crazy young punk educator with radical notions about how we should teach math to kids.

Math Establishment: Wow. This guy’s got some following. And we can see him, hear him, read him for ourselves. Let’s invite him to be a featured speaker at the national conference.

 

Could this happen in the past? Sure, theoretically. But it was much, much harder. So probably not.

On the Web we can write (and podcast and video and Tweet…) ourselves into existence. Teach our children, please, how they can be Dan Meyer too.
