For a long time, education looked like this.
The teacher was the authority, sprinkling information on thirsty students.
Paulo Freire likened traditional teachers to bank tellers, doling out information in frugal
doses.
Students were considered sheep, needing to be led.
Then, some people said, “Stop!”
Maybe things were out of order.
Maybe students could work to build their own understanding.
Maybe students had something to say, something that needed saying, and the saying of
which would allow them to educate the...
They could communicate and collaborate.
They could create.
There are lots of tools to let this happen.
Lots of ways students can grow their understanding.
They make posters
They make models
They perform experiments
They go on field trips
They work together.
All of it designed to have the students construct their own meaning and understanding.
And then, along came Web 2.0
Instantly, people could communicate, collaborate, and think together ...
Suddenly being an author with a real audience became a reality for just about
anybody...students included
In all kinds of new ways.
