Tailoring a Tapestry of Talent

Students today enjoy the connectedness of social networking; it is part of their very being. My goal is to bring my instruction into that cloud to teach the content required in ways that inspire online responsibility and ethics in this new, very public world.

With the interactive, choice-filled technology, students words and videos flow in on-the-spot thinking. Creating concise and creative texts and images requires careful composition. Kids today will become adept at such fluid forays in online thinking, writing, and imaging. They will demand of us the opportunity to learn in such an environment; they want the choices and options. Part of our responsibility is to provide a grounding of their connectivity as they weave their strengths and talents in their choices and networks. We help them connect the millions of dots into a bigger picture, and they will lead us as well.

Thanks for your thoughtful comment. It seems to me that we may be asking the wrong question. Rather than asking how to educate some students well perhaps we should be asking how to educate all students well. Suspect that seeking an answer to the later question will lead our practice in a profoundly different direction and ICT would be a much more essential element of that practice.

Is Online Learning The Answer For The Coronavirus Closed Schools?

With the rapid spread of the Corona Virus, there has been a clarion call for schools to close and immediately shift to online learning in the interest of health and safety. With all that has been written and talked about in regard to “online learning” over the last decade, the perception is that now is a great time to put tech to work and implement this modern methodology to address our current situation and limit face-to-face exposure in order to self-quarantine a huge portion of our…See More
