The Role Of Student Choice In Connected Classrooms - Edudemic | Newington Professional Reading | Scoop.it
With the influx of technology into connected classrooms, the role of student choice has become as important as ever.
Sean Corcoran's insight:

Great article on the improtance of student choice and how iPads help to facilitate this. "...if we give students an assignment that produces 25 copies of identical work, we’ve given a recipe, not a thought-provoking, opportunity for growth. When teachers give some props to the unknown, and task students to show their deep understanding of a subject or skill with the best tools available, you might say miracles happen. We should be a little less afraid of miracles." Great for CBL!

Really interesting article on the different roles of a teacher.
