Welcome to our class blog. This blog contains resources students may use to enrich their learning.
My name is Scott Le Duc. I have been a learner all of my life. I am an autodidact. So, I am in the right profession. I am a National Board Certified educator currently work at Capital High School teaching International Baccalaureate (IB) and Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes focusing on arts and technology instruction, specifically music, film and game design. I have worked as an adjunct faculty at Lesley University, City University of Seattle, St. Martin’s University, and Wuhan University of Technology in Hubei Province, China.
Short Educational Biography
I have taught creative and technical arts for over 25 years. I support students of all abilities to develop their creative voice and agency in a co-authored classroom learning community that Brian Eno calls a ‘Scenius’ or collective genius. I also have a co-founder of the Washington State-based non-profit Advanced Media Entertainment Society (AMES) which helps build a community between high school students and professional storytellers in the media arts.
What I Do…
I help teachers and students develop contextual learning based on student agency. What? I help teachers and students focus on the end in mind. What? Think problem-based learning. What? Try this … ask yourself, ‘what problem(s) are we trying to solve?’ Start with that first, then build the learning experience. Lastly, students and teachers share power in developing and maintaining this learning experience. This is part of my process.
This site is for others, like me, that revel in relevant learning, enjoy effective teaching, participate in powerful presentations, and create collaborative media. Most of all, for people who love what they do and, do what they love. To Quote M.K. Gandhi, “My life is my message.”
