21st c classroom

  • Superb presentation - two points - where did all of this begin - look at your Bloom slide and ask what came before the taxonomy. Also consider Marshall McLuhan's words. In 1962 our communication technology was limited - yes we had landlines across North America, even data transmission (oh so slow!) but it was operational for business. A few world class airlines had centralized seat inventories but most still depended on teletype connections and marine cables. No satellites - have you ever wondered how original thinking (like McLuhan's) evolves?

  • Love the presentation particularly the opening slide of the fist clutching the mouse - I want to use it.
    So I did a Google image search It has been used many times - so I restricted the search to used before 2008 and found
    David told me where the citation belongs:
    'I am here for the learning revolution Wesley Fryer '
    Keep up your great work on and Slideshare etc
