“Your students are learning without you”
The friction is with teachers embracing a new paradign for learning. Students have unpresented access to information – “kids don’t grow up in the dark anymore”.
Focus needs to shift from adapting current to creating new pedagogy. We need to think differently about the technology, avoid thinking of it as a barrier.
Learning also needs to be holistic – “Not available at the APP store”
Learning active, roleplay, playful, in and out of class, student driven, dynamic, not necessarily tech, teacher at centre not at front. “MAKEmore” Celebrate teachers (in USA like police, fire fighters)
