Let's talk about LEARNING, not technology! What are some cultural shifts in our fast changing world, that have an impact on our own learning as educators? How can we start thinking differently about learning?

Thank you to Will Richardson for his thought provoking "3 Steps to Start Thinking Differently About Learning"( learning.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/25/guest-post-three-starting-points-for-thinking-differently-about-learning/) , Alec Couros for his 5 Answers to Challenges of Teaching & Learning in the 21st Century" (slideshare.net/courosa/taking-on-the-challenge-of-21st-century-teaching-learning) and Steve Hargadon for his thoughts of "You First", which makes so much sense.

  • @DavidTerron I agree, great presentation but it is kind of ironic (at least to a certain degree) that the Download option is disabled by the author. I know you can share it without a problem but still it's nice to download cool presentations for inspiration, tips, reminders or maybe just good old information, anyway, your comment made me laugh :D

  • Good stuff but rather let down by slide 58 saying you should share when you don't yourself 8-) I share everything I create and am forever giving things away to colleagues. If we don't share how can we spread the word further, faster and forever? I'll try to show this to staff during an INSET Day, internet willing 8-)
