Weekend Ed. Quote ~ August 14

“We now live in a world where we have public lives and private lives — and for over a century now, since roughly the point at which the above article appeared, the portion of our lives considered ‘public’ has been expanding, while the portion of our lives we can consider ‘private’ has been contracting… Never before have we faced so many opportunities to turn the formerly-private into the newly-public. As those opportunities arise, many people adopt them, and turn “public” into the new norm for such activities. Eventually, the norms become societally entrenched,” ~Felix Salmon

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ July 31

This week’s ed. quote is a nod to the Digital Immigrant Pioneers of the past


“In an inquiry learning environment we never want to suggest that all that can be said on a topic has been said. And learners need to be able to return to old forums to re-read and decide for themselves what it all meant. So we leave one session’s discussions behind to focus on new ones, but old ones are never really closed in the very brief courses we facilitate.” ~Marsha West, PBS TeacherLine pioneer, 2005

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ July 24

“The word ‘technology’ gets put out there as if computers and technology are synonymous. Whereas, a different technology in my classroom might be handing out whiteboards and giving students erasable pens. That’s a tremendous technology, because it engages them. I see the results. I can check for understanding. And, in part, the students can see each other responding. That’s the big piece missing from distance learning. I’ve heard it said that we’re using a system that’s 100 years old, putting a bunch of students in a classroom,” Sampson added. “And yes, of course that’s true. But once it’s taken away, we realize what an advantage that was.” ~ Paul Sampson, Middle School Spanish teacher in Scotts Valley, California.

“Being explicit about one’s goal of cultivating an inclusive, equitable and fair classroom learning environment reiterated that students and instructors are on the same side, not on somehow opposing sides, of the teaching and learning process” (Tanner, 2013, p. 328).
