Who will my students BECOME after they LEARN with me?

Who will my students BECOME after they LEARN with me? | Higher Education | Scoop.it

 

LEARNing has to involve change…change in the way the LEARNer thinks, feels and acts. It’s not just about LEARNing “stuff” or it shouldn’t be.

 

The “stuff” we are creating these days is growing at exponential rates…and if our goal, as TEACHers, is to simply TEACH this stuff, we might as well just pack up and go home – and leave it all to the tech we now have!

Scoop.it Pros: Laura Brown on curation and the display of information | Higher Education | Scoop.it

Ten shocking lessons a huge Texas conglomerate has foisted on public school students | Higher Education | Scoop.it

Cynthia Tait's insight:

from the ever emerging area of law and privacy. Consider the implications, but then again consider the implications of NOT respecting the creative effort in a 'performance'. Is it less than any other medium? And if it is not....why is this form of publishing so different from when a student submits a written assignment? Isn't that also a 'creative' product, albeit an academic one.
