Tech Double Shot
Two tech ideas to start off your week
#1 - What IS Learning?
What IS learning? How DO people learn? What is your own view on these questions? How do our colleagues answer these same questions?
Before worrying about the latest and greatest in education technology, it is worth taking a moment to consider these basic questions about learning. Our answers, whether we've thought of them lately or not, will inform everything we do as educators.
After you've thought it over, share your thoughts with a colleague or even with your students! You can also leave your thoughts on this topic on the related blog post on the new Blue Sky Space @ Dwight blog. I'll post my own opinion there in the near future. Who will be the brave one to post first?
#2 - Infomagical
Infomagical (which you can still sign up for today) is a "series of experiments designed to help you find focus and discover the magic of clear thinking". Think of it as a way of tidying up the streams of information in your life so that you can focus on a significant goal, such as being more creative or more in tune with yourself. Are you up to the challenge? What would your goal be?
