Re-Inventing Education

This week, we're looking at the French education system. But instead of focusing on traditional approaches, we've decided to find out more about what's new to both teaching and learning. More and more parents are choosing alternative schools for their children. These methods use different tools to stimulate children's minds by making them self-motivated and independent learners. We take you to meet some of the people trying to reinvent the idea of school.

Teachers and Students

Inspiring teacher Wyatt Oroke sat down with Ellen to talk about giving more opportunities to his students – who surprised him all the way from Baltimore, Maryland.

Memphis high school teacher Michael Scruggs' special mantra has been impacting his students' lives for nearly a decade. Ellen invited him to the show to hear more about his wonderful message, and to give him a special surprise! 

Ellen sat down with Akbar Cook, Principal of a Newark, New Jersey high school, who after noticing at-risk students being bullied for dirty clothes, worked hard to install washing machines and dryers so the kids could do laundry. After hearing his story, Ellen teamed up with her friends at Cheerios to help Principal Cook continue to do good and support his "babies" at school. 


The global economy is in crisis. The exponential exhaustion of natural resources, declining productivity, slow growth, rising unemployment, and steep inequality, forces us to rethink our economic models. Where do we go from here? In this feature-length documentary, social and economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin lays out a road map to usher in a new economic system.  

How do creative people come up with great ideas? Organizational psychologist Adam Grant studies "originals": thinkers who dream up new ideas and take action to put them into the world. In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals — including embracing failure. "The greatest originals are the ones who fail the most, because they're the ones who try the most," Grant says. "You need a lot of bad ideas in order to get a few good ones."

The Art of Thinking Clearly by author Rolf Dobelli talks about fallacies that make us less effective. 

College and University Campus Tours

WATCH IN HD! Campus tour of the University of Southern California (USC), located in Los Angeles, California roughly 2 miles southwest of Downtown Los Angeles in the University Park District. USC is California's oldest research private university.  I was really impressed with USC's campus. I've always seen pictures of the campus but it was a completely different experience visiting the school especially on Saturday morning college football gameday!  

Each installment of Ben's Tours takes you on a visit to a special place.  This time, celebrate return-to-school season with a campus tour of the University of Notre Dame, founded in South Bend, Indiana in 1842. 

Join our host Rebecca as we take you on a tour of Duke University's Campus. We will be highlighting places on East and West Campus. Enjoy!
