Information Literacy for Littlies From the time they are born children are innately curious and as soon as they are able to articulate the words, they ask questions so they can make the connections they need as they try to make sense of their world. As the nearest adult we try to help them with the answers. When the child comes to school they know they are going to learn to read not only so they can enjoy stories for themselves but also so they can answer their own questions.

Looking Back to the Future! Seymour Papert - Teaching vs. Learning Education with an Emphasis on LEARNING not Teaching! Seymour Papert the Teacher Activist. :) "Nothing enrages me more than when people criticize my criticism of school by telling me that schools are not just places to learn math and spelling, they are places where children learn a vaguely defined thing called socialization. I know. I think schools generally do an effective and terribly damaging job of teaching children to be infantile, dependent, intellectually dishonest, passive and disrespectful to their own developmental capacities."
The Journey : Education for All ? Today week 2 of EDCMOOC started . Our assignments this week are related to watching and analysing some videos and do some core reading about Metaphors and the Internet by Rebecca Johnston.
