Sir Ken, once again…and Scott

It looks like Sir Ken was invited back to TED recently. Big inspiration all over again!

He adds that “new-media”/techies and teachers need to collaborate more than ever today if the educational environment wants to keep up with the contemporary and future creative landscape…

OK… I better get on that.

I’ve also just discovered Scott McLeod on Dangerously Irrelevant who may not be as entertaining to listen to as Sir Ken but drives the issue home re: educational reform needs, nonetheless.

About cayoup

Colleen Ayoup was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. She has been engaged in media creation for nearly twenty years. After attending the Dawson Institute of Photography (Montreal), she worked as a commercial photographer for several years until the craving for different creative pursuits gave way. This desire led to two subsequent degrees in Psychology/Film Studies and Film Production (B.A., B.F.A) at Concordia University in Montreal. Her short fiction films and documentary, Kings (2001), about drag-king culture in Montreal toured festivals internationally. In 2004, she joined the National Film Board of Canada where she coordinated Doc Shop, a program designed to give emerging filmmakers an opportunity to learn trade skills from industry professionals and produce a short documentary for broadcast on CBC. She also contributed to the development and creation of CitizenShift (, the NFB’s first social-media website that she subsequently coordinated for five years. She is a recent graduate of the Master of Fine Arts program in Documentary Media at Ryerson University (Toronto, ON)
