My presentation online to SMOOT Finland yesterday. Not the greatest video in the world (the quality is OK, but it's just me sitting at my desk and speaking) but it represents a full day's worth of production, as I struggled with my MacBook Pro, Parallels, Windows XP running on Parallels, Adobe Premiere Elements, and various other drivers and support applications, to get the video from the camera to the Google Video site where it now resides. The talk itself is a familiar message, as I talk about how teachers should take control of their own learning and the principles they should use to select technology. Near the end is my latest take on an answer to the old question about whether students need instruction - I know I could answer that question forever and not convince everyone, but I still think it's worth trying to frame that answer in different ways, if only to understand the issue.
