Natalie Kathleen Barratt's curator insight, May 23, 2013 4:43 AM

This is a really good find, a gorgeous blog dedicated to 'the magic of technology in the 21st century English classroom'. Not only does this blogger, a young second language teacher herself consider the use of facebook in within the classroom context, but they also include related materials such as an A-Z list of web 2.0 apps, blogs and wikis.
I really enjoyed exploring this blog and really like the fact that it is written from the perspective of an active language teacher who is likely to be employing the resources addessed in her blog means that the knowledge being shared is not purly theoretical, thus making it more likely to be applicable within the classroom.

Tracy18's curator insight, March 19, 2013 6:46 AM

Such an inspiration and a very insightful man. We have been stuck in a 'Teacher says so' learning environment for generations and a shift is occuring whereby students are embracing change and using technolgy in a constructivist manner to further their own education, students are embracing change much more readily than teachers who still seem reluctant. 

Sample Student's comment, March 25, 2013 10:42 PM
I first discovered John Seely Brown when completing my M.Ed - http://people.ucsc.edu/~gwells/Files/Courses_Folder/ED%20261%20Papers/Situated%20Cognition.pdf. This view on learning rang, and still rings truth as one of the core theories that underpin my beliefs. It is timeless. In an age where learners' contexts are often more deterministic than the classroom, the interdependence of activity, culture and concept is, as you point out so well, a fundamental principle of social constructivism. In the age of technology, as information becomes so available to all, our learning cultures have shifted to one in which the learner is empowered to lead their own learning. And so this model, presented before the age of social technology, still predicts, anticipates, and explains learning.
