Knowledge, Learning, Community

This article explores aspects of the use of technology to teach attitudes. For example, the author considers 'wonder' to be a desirable attribute in a learner. He suggests, using a VR video montage of scenes from Morocco, that it "engaged them in a way that just reading or talking about the country and seeing photos wouldn't have achieved." He also looks at the effect of having students make coasters similar to what they would find in the souk of Fez and reportyed that the group "was quick to remember the effort they had invested in the project and reflect on how much more work would be involved in doing all of the engraving by hand."
