Curiosity is probably the greatest intrinsic motivator for learning... foster curiosity and you create a learner...

Provocative article, especially the questions at the bottom, including: What happens when students don't know what they don't know?


I ask this for us as communities and a socieity, what happens when we don't know what we don't know?     


History has some terrifying answers on what people can do collectively when locked into a set idea of "knowledge."   


How can we best leverage technology to support students as critical thinkers, curious and empowered?

The article once again stresses the weaknesses of PowerPoint presentations and invites the readers to return to "that old-fashioned, low-tech competence" (plain speech) that may successfully replace a bad presentation.

Don't shoot the messenger — it's not the tool that's the problem it's the 'toolee'

Bullet-point PPTs are a disaster. Print them as handouts for notetaking, but don't highlight them on stage. I agree with Shamblesguru, however - don't blame the tool. Done right, PPT can be magical.

I like Prezi but the email link can be a bite when you move from school to school. Nice presentation!
