Thanks to @vptechnodork for calling me out on Twitter. As a general rule I don’t respond to chain letters, pyramid schemes, telemarketers or the guy who wants to look at my hot water heater, but Greg is none of those… that I know of. I also don’t like numbered things, Top 10 this, worst 8 that.Too many limitations. But, I am going to do this one. Mostly because I think there are many people out there who have five or more of these they’d like to get off their chest and partly because @vptechnodork is a good guy.
When it comes to education, we have to stop pretending that…
- 21st century learning = technology.
- curriculum police exist.
- if we were starting from scratch now, we would build the same education system we have today.
- student products are the best way to understand what a student is capable of doing/thinking.
- “I’m not a tech person.” is an acceptable excuse for not trying.
What are yours?
