Law #1: It’s not the technology. It’s what you do with it.
Law #2: It’s not what the technology makes possible. It’s what technology makes easy.
Law #3: Pay attention to the trends in learning, not in technology.

It's hard to overstate the potential volatility of the Syrian front • On the surface, things are business as usual, but the distance between the current quiet and a big explosion is small • Israeli action in Syria could deteriorate into regional war.

Future Models of Learning - Debate

Future Models of Learning - Debate | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Does new technology conflict with or complement established teaching and learning? What is the impact on the teaching profession as we have traditionally known it? Will the power of the internet, with new innovations such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), create an unstoppable ‘avalanche’ of education reform, or are these reforms a false revolution? Can the value of face-to-face quality learning and student-teacher relationships ever really be questioned, at any level of education? Will the class room, lecture theatre, and traditional notion of education space – schools and universities – be usurped by a screen, online and distance learning, or alternative spaces such as the workplace, home, or concert-hall?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 3, 2013 11:03 AM

It should complement. Art and the French language provide a word for what should happen: bricolage. Bricolage is the blending of two materials, in this case traditional and new pedagogy, in ways that might infuse them. A philosophical approach might to use Gadamer and Vico to discuss sensus communis which is the common sense of a community based on wisdom and creativity.

 

The format is interesting as it is similar to a Ethnograhic Futures Research format gone viral.
