Plurality of Diversity

Miguel Guhlin, The New Inquiry, Jan 01, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

According to Chris Moersch, writes Guhlin, "blending technology into curriculum typically fails because technology - the spice - is left out of the cooking process, as this article on the What Didn't Happen in Edtech in 2013 highlights." Meanwhile, in Inequity and BYOD (well worth reading in its own right) George Couros writes, "Technology should be at the point of instruction and be as accessible in learning as a pencil; it shouldn’t be an event." And in particular, Once the possibility exists for students to study informally, at online (and offline) schools, compiling their own learning playlist, putting together units of study that appeal to their passions, the one-size-fits-all model of high school will appear alarmingly anachronistic."
