Embrace the shake by Phil Hansen

Phil Hansen's Embrace the shake video was sent to a few of us by Blended e-learning facilitator Ian Suckling. It looks at how limitations and constraints can support rather than hinder innovation and creativity.

Within it are many really cool examples of making art out of seriously weird media. Great for students in high school settings.

The challenge of the video that could be a prompt for discussion could be around our expectations of students:

  • Do we lower our expectations because we see first the student's needs as weaknesses or limitations?
  • Do we lift our expectations because we see the student's needs as a springboard for new ways of thinking and doing?
You can also view the Embrace the shake video with it's interactive transcript on YouTube. This option is a great way to find quotes you can use later.
