Teaching at a crossroads

John Connell explores Teaching at a crossroads “…in an age where technological development has changed the game in education, changed it to its core, the innately conservative nature of the formal institutions of education are recognizing such shifts only very slowly, and in some places hardly at all.” John’s discussion of the notion of “pedagogy first” resonates with some thoughts I expressed recently on my connectivism blog. It’s a discussion with many conflicting perspectives…but it’s important that we consider different elements of teaching/technology and theory/practice, even though the process gets a bit bumpy at times ;) .

    I still am waiting for the discussion on what new skills we need to develop. I worry that my students (and my own kids) have such poor skimming, priority setting, and connecting information skills.
