Effective Problem-Solvers in an Information-on Demand Society | Stephen Portz | TEDxTheWeissSchool

Many assume the teacher’s role is to answer the questions of inquisitive minds; however, technology instructor Stephen Portz explains that simply providing answers actually discourages authentic learning. He offers a hierarchy to eliminate the “monkey on students’ backs’ (their problems) so they can be self reliant. Stephen Portz is a nationally recognized leader in STEM Education and an Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellow. As a veteran educator in Career and Technical Education for over 30 years, Steve has been a pioneer in secondary engineering education – developing curriculum standards, serving on state and national certification committees for software and testing, and working on a team to establish a nation engineering credential for students. A very early adopter of 3D printing in the classroom, Portz is passionate about working with local manufacturing, training students in industrial and engineering design, and teaching students how to become product developers This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
