Bud Hunt

Bud Hunt is one of the authors of Teaching in the Connected Learning Classroom. He is a rather enigmatic man, with rather enigmatic answers. Though to be fair there a better interview venues than twitter, his answers often leave me with more questions than i started. Though he wrote a section on open-networks in connected learning, he is particularly passionate about production-centered and interest-driven learning. When students are passionate about learning and have something to show for it, they are much more likely to become invested and interested in the work at hand. Bud Hunt is a rather simple man too, he does not seem so concerned with the resources at hand or the classic pathways of education, rather he seems to believe that with real connection, real passion, and real experiences, the learning, the love, and the education will all follow. What i really like about Bud Hunt is that at the core of it all, he’s not concerned with all the complications and red-tape of education, he drives to the core of what is really key about education, the students.

Interview with Bud Hunt – it’s a short interview as the interview was done over twitter and the answers are rather open to interpretation, but i like that. They make me think harder about why he answered the way he did and what sorts of ideas i can gain from his work.

@budtheteacher which is more effective : creating open networks between the kids and the outside would or open networks within the school?

A: Bud Hunt ‏@budtheteacher

@QueSeraSarah99 If the networks are truly open, then what’s the difference?

Q: sarah bragg ‏@QueSeraSarah99

@budtheteacher without access to technology or the budget for it, how can you keep kids connected outside of the classroom?

A: Bud Hunt ‏@budtheteacher

@QueSeraSarah99 I don’t think you have to buy all the stuff for connections to happen. Love the one you’re with.

Q: sarah bragg ‏@QueSeraSarah99

@budtheteacher is it better /easier to bring experts /outside experiences into the classroom or to go to them?

A: Bud Hunt ‏@budtheteacher

@QueSeraSarah99 Depends on the experts and what they know that your students don’t.

Q: sarah bragg ‏@QueSeraSarah99
