The Filter. For the Moment

Bud Hunt, Bud the Teacher, Sept 08, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Darren Draper explains why he decided to block facebook in the classroom. "it's a matter of fighting for balance and the cognitive attention of our students... students have tended to spend inordinate amounts of time on the site - forming gangs, playing cards, writing on walls, and poking each other." Bud Hunt replies, "There are an awful lot of distractions on the Internet. Every time we focus on them, we draw attention to them and away from the educational goals and objectives we'd like to, and should be, focusing on. Let's all stop doing that."
