A New Diigo Vision and Call for Advice: On Students Teaching China to the West

Clay Burell, Beyond School, Dec 24, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Clay Burell described how he changed his technology - and his approach - in his Chinese history course this year. He changed his textbook, replaced Blackboard with Ning, and, well, still got stuck in the "one fact after another" trap, something that's easy to do when covering one dynasty after another for a 4,000 year time span. I like the post because of the concreteness of the example (and because I studied Chinese history as an elective in high school).
