Real talk about virtual education
January 30, 2011
Don't miss Bill Tucker's new post on the Education Next page. He takes out?after the Times for a piece they did about digital learning in Florida.
As Tucker writes, ?as we've seen in the past with the Times, the article is framed by an assumption that the traditional classroom is best. It implies a false dichotomy between technology and good teaching.?
It's time ? past time, perhaps, as the leaders of Tunisia and Egypt are learning ? to recognize the fact that Internet is not the classroom TV of the Sixties.? The World Wide Web is here ? and everywhere.
