Creating a New Culture of Teaching and Learning with Alan NovemberMay 10, 2012 by PC Munoz "Creating a New Culture of Teaching and Learning" is a Scientific Learning webinar presented by Alan November, proposing that educators make the most of today's "small world" by turning classrooms into global communication centers and collaborating with fellow teachers and students from all over the world. November's ideas about a new culture of teaching and learning are plentiful, as are his suggestions for further research. In this webinar, November proposes a pathway to a 21st century educational paradigm that is centered around information, collaboration, and empathy. Here are just a few of his thoughts on the subject: Information Schools ought to abolish their "technology planning committees," which focus on "stuff" (wires, boxes, hardware). Collaboration The educational experience can and should be supercharged with true collaboration. Empathy More than once during his presentation, November states that he hopes his ideas are "good enough to critique."
