This really is an engagement issue.  As a former preschool, toddler and first grade teacher- I firml believe students "look different" based on gender at these early ages. 

 

So then what?  

 

Again.........I question the content we teach and the timeline we put boys on for learning that content.  I suspect more damage is done by expecting them to be something they aren't.  

 

I can vision a different reality where boys are allowed to be boys with strong men supporting and guiding along the way.  Yes.  We need more men in elementary schools.

The Connected Learning Manifesto - add your thoughts

The Connected Learning Manifesto - add your thoughts | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

 

"A revolution in technology has transformed the way we can find each other, interact, and collaborate to create knowledge as connected learners." (Connected Learning Manifesto - http://plpnetwork.com/2012/07/23/connected-learning-manifesto/)

 

Justin Marquis wrote suggestions to be added to the Manifesto and to further the discussion about the impact of connected learning. He focused on these topics:
- Connectivity/Collaboration
- Empowerment/Self-Directed Learning
- Creativity/Innovation
- Diversity/Breaking Down Boundaries
- Self-Awareness/Reflection
- Lifelong Learning

 

I really agree with the author’s statement: “Connected Learning helps develop the literacy skills necessary to survive in a hi-tech world.”
http://www.onlineuniversities.com/blog/2012/08/contributing-the-connected-learning-manifesto/

 

The Manifesto wants to hear from you. Add your thoughts, statements, or strong assertions to the Connected Learning Manifesto. - http://plpnetwork.com/2012/07/23/connected-learning-manifesto/

Ryan Craig: Three Ways Online Learning Hits The Jackpot | WiredAcademic

Ryan Craig: Three Ways Online Learning Hits The Jackpot | WiredAcademic | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

 

The traditional classroom is like a blackjack table.  You must visit the facility in order to participate.  Sessions start when the leader says so.  There are relatively complex rules in order to participate.  The session proceeds in a manner that is not individually tailored to your preferences.  And sticking with it requires a focus on the long-term goal (i.e., earning a degree, or winning back your money).

 

Enter digital technology.  As in gambling, technology is important in higher education not in and of itself, but because it enables three developments that will make learning much more effective, and perhaps addictive.
