I read this article about what Mr Alfie Kohn calls Feel bad education
It jerked me into questioning the way I teach. I did not find the article entirely cynical and I agree with most of what Mr Kohn has to say, although I would not say the students at my school feel QUIET desperation, their desperation is definitely audible!
Has web 2.0 tools improved things? How?
It did for my students and for me too. With web 2.0 tools students feel differently about learning. They can master part of it, they are involved in the process and enjoy it more as a consequence. They seem to remember it much better too.
What is your opinion?
