Why do we have teachers? “ One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.” Carl Jung Nirupa Badve introduces her refugee students to the world of technology. Nirupa shows them how they can still be a part of the place they have left behind. Most of Nirupa's students are refugees from war torn countries and many have never been in a classroom before. For many of them a computer is something they might have heard of but never had the opportunity to use. http://www.teachers.tv/video/29048 "It had to be teaching," he said. "I'd proved to myself that I could do a job, one I love – to the extent that on some days off I still go back and work a customer care shift. But I wanted to get back into schools. I'd had outstanding teachers who helped me, but others who didn't. So that was where the work was to be done.” http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2009/oct/27/teaching-awards-dyslexia-special-needs To teach is to learn twice over.

Pedagogy and Connectivism – some personal observations “ In other words, social network theories fail to account for the ontological differences between humans and non humans, explaining human agency in dehumanized terms” http://blog.ulisesmejias.com/2006/10/09/the-tyranny-of-nodes-towards-a-critique-of-social-network-theories/ Teachers responded enthusiastically to connectivism in CCK08 Flexed their approach in response to ideas from connectivism Non-purist approach, adapted ideas and incorporate in pedagogic ‘toolset’ Modelled connectivist principles in their learning then reflected/critiqued on theory applied to practice Incorporation not conversion

[07/11/2009 12:10:39] Robert Massey: Re-living the heady days of Silicon Valley's seminal start-ups, the film tells how Noyce also founded Intel, the company responsible for more than 80 per cent of the microprocessors in personal computers. Noyce defined the unconventional, innovative culture of Silicon Valley - the likes of Apple and Google would be influenced by his egalitarian management style, which was inspired by his religious upbringing.
