Here comes the future!
A lot of us have been equating “personalized learning” with the technology that makes (or will make) individualized learning paths possible, but this article makes the point that, as is pretty much always the case, it’s about the practices and not the technology; technology may help to implement, but it’s not going to do it “all by itself.”
Quote for today:
“If we want to make a dent in the problem of digital distractions in class, we must begin by clarifying the policies we have created and the reasons behind them. Those reasons might look different from teacher to teacher.” — James Lang, professor of English at Assumption College. (The Chronicle of Higher Education)
A good thought while preparing the syllabus. Not just “turn it off,” but this is WHY I don’t want you on Facebook and Instagram and Snapchat during class and it has to do with acquiring both the skills AND the discipline to be successful in life and in the workplace.
