"A big challenge here, and I don't think anyone has solved it, is how do you give the audience a 360-degree choice, all the time," said creator Alex McDowell, "but whatever choice they make will contribute to a cumulative understanding of the story."

I think lack of consultation is huge. When consulted, teachers can express what they experience in their classrooms and lives. Are they ready for a particular technology? Technology involves conversations.

Marinhos's curator insight, February 6, 5:45 AM

Se as licenciatura não mudarem - e radicalmente - os seus docentes permanecerão fazenão a escola sem tecnologia (digital). No dia em que não mais houver motivos para os formadores de formadores não usarem essa tecnologia, os professores das escolas da Educação Básica também não os terão. Carência na formação é a primeira peça do dominó a ser derrubada.

Mais uma vez anunciam a morte da sala de aula. Temo que ela permaneça viva - e por muito tempo - pois continuamos a formar professores que a alimentam. Se as licenciaturas mudarem, haverá uma chance de mudarmos a escola, ainda que ela tenha sala de aulas. Se as licenciaturas permanecerem no passado, não haverá um outro futuro para a escola.

The Simple Human Interactions That Make Learning Possible

The Simple Human Interactions That Make Learning Possible | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Nothing will ever take the place of one person actually being with another person. Let’s not get so fascinated by what technology can do that we forget what it can’t do. A computer can help you learn to spell “H-U-G,” but it can never know the risks or the joy of actually giving or receiving one. It’s through relationships that we grow best–and learn best.
