Pedagogy First!
Here I go thinking that I can quickly finish this task as I’m on catch up mode big time. I should have known better!! Having watched the video and read the articles, I am left thinking about Issac Asimov’s Foundation series. A lot of what was said makes me think that we have to be very careful where we go with learning. I think we have to be careful to ensure that students are given the problem solving skills to interact with the vast range of information available to us rather than just relying on being able to find out what we want to know when we want to know about it. The ability to have a learning network approach is very important but so is the ability to learn through building and sharing. First the video I usually turn up my nose at theory as I see myself as a more application person, but the content of this video totally hooked me. As time went on and as my study needs changed, I moved to extramural study (management and maths) in the late 1980s to the early 2000s.

For today's learners, it just clicks Illustration: Monique Westermann At the start of this year, 7000 school students in Miami took a maths course delivered entirely by computer. Instead of a teacher, the only adult in the room was a ''facilitator'' who dealt with technical problems and ensured students remained on task. Labor's Digital Education Revolution (DER) ensures every year 9 student in Australia gets a laptop so could Australian classrooms one day resemble those in Miami?
