About This Show
TheEditorial's Heidi Legg brings you in-depth interviews with thought-leaders inside and around the cultural Petri dish we call Cambridge, MA. Surrounded with Harvard, MIT, and a bevy of institutes and leading tech and life science companies, we curate interviews that will change the way we look at the world and how we live. We think there is power in putting the Poet next to the Scientist, the Industrialist next to the Artist, and the Social Philanthropist next to the Techie to capture this moment in time. All our interviews are also available in print at TheEditorial.com.
Most Recent Episode
Two years ago, Dean Bragonier founded NoticeAbility in an effort to change student curriculum for dyslexic kids before his own son hits middle school. Why? Dean and his wife Sally Taylor are both dyslexic. What struck me most was when Dean explained that the invention of the Gutenberg printing press and text-based learning meant 20% of our population was left. This fall Martha’s Vineyard public schools will adopt his curriculum district-wide, he will pilot with Citizens Schools and offer his curriculum at three private schools. His interview offers a fascinating insight into the brain, how we learn and why we can’t leave dyslexic kids behind.
