Technology Makes Learning More Doable [...]

It is often argued that technology is about redefinition and substitution. However, Bill Ferriter makes the case that technology simply makes things *more doable* and easier for everyone. > Technology lowers barriers, making the kinds of higher order learning experiences that matter infinitely more doable than they were in previous decades. This is contrast to those...

 

Fourth Revolution Regulations [...]

Gary Coleman discusses some of the challenges associated with the _**Fourth Revolution**_ around regulations: >With so many regulatory questions surfacing as new business models are launched using exponential technologies, some business owners are taking a proactive role. For instance, technology companies are working with the EU to reshape privacy rules that impact t...

 

Uncoachable? [...]

Peter DeWitt reflects on the question, _are some teachers **uncoachable**?_ >The truth is that at some point it is no longer the coaches job to work with a teacher if that teacher doesn't want to work with the coach. At some point it is the job of the administrator to chime in and work with the teacher. Coaches are not supposed to be evaluators. The other day a ver...

 

Edtech’s inability to imagine the future [...]

Benjamin Doxtdater reflects on the current state of **EdTech** and wonders if instead of teachers being _scared_ that technology companies just aren't ready for the future: >Perhaps it’s Edtech, not teachers, that lags far behind in its narrow discussion of technology. Rather than leading the way forward, Edtech is stuck in the past and irrelevant, especially to tho...

 

Unbundling Education [...]

>Like its close cousin Disruption, unbundling has been a favourite philosophy of the silicon valley start up. It has often been applied to education (even, erm, by me). This piece for example boldly states “The bundle of knowledge and certification that have long-defined higher education is coming apart”. The idea has some merit – if education mov...

 

Writing a Newsletter [...]

There are many different presentation platforms. One that has come to the surface of late is the **newsletter**: > A newsletter can be a powerful tool as you not only make sense of your thinking, but also share this work with others. I believe that the process of reflection is involved as you create and publish a newsletter. I often have colleagues suggest that an RS...

 

Trust matters! [...]

Seth Godin highlights what matters most, **trust**. Too often we try and cheat this or avoid it, but without trust all else fails. >The real asset you're building is trust....

 

Education and Democracy [...]

>For him democracy is not a normal situation, i.e., it is not a way in which the police order exists, but rather occurs in the interruption of the order in the name of equality—which is why he says that democracy is sporadic. Furthermore, democratization for Rancière is not something that is done to others; it is something that people can only do themselves. Ran...

 

Civilisation not Peace [...]

And this can be our goal. Every day, with every action, to make something more civilized. To find more dignity and possibility and opportunity for those around us, those we know and don't know. Toward civilization by Seth Godin http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2017/03/toward-civilization.html...

 

Twitter as an idea, not just a platform [...]

> On one level, big social platforms borrowing features from one another has a long history in software development. Facebook alone took the “like” from Tumblr, the “check in” from Foursquare, “trending” from Twitter, and the “story” from Snapchat. But on another level, the recent moves to integrate real-time public posts show the internet not copying ...
