Revisiting Alan Turing and the Day of Silence with Radiolab

March 25, 2012

If you haven’t listened to it yet, Radiolab just produced an incredible short program on Alan Turing: The Turing Problem. The show is 20 minutes long and it is FANTASTIC. I encourage you to listen to it now.

This has me thinking about how to revisit the program I’ve done in the past few years to introduce my students to the Day of Silence (most haven’t heard of it before). This time, I want to incorporate at least part of the above Radiolab program. My other thought is to do this program a few days before the Day of Silence, and then try Kelly O’Shea’s fantastic Monk Whiteboarding exercise on the actual Day of Silence.

But I’m open to suggestions—how might you follow up this Radiolab program or my presentation to get students thinking more deeply about these issues?

    there is nothing more that finding something that gives you inspiration. Im happy to hear that an educator such as yourself still finds inspiration and that is what keeps the fire going.
