Alan November has been working with teachers for a long time. In this recent TED-x talk , he shares his concerns with today’s students and classrooms. Are we working with the million dollar pencil or have we harnessed the technology to deeply engage our students in their learning. Do they really know how to search ( country code? assignments written since the internet? Point of view? How can you make thinking visible? What are you doing to provide world wide connections for your students?) .This to 20 minute talk is worth your time.
