  9. 9. what i learned • Your peers are probably not in your school. Colleagues are suspicious of change - maybe I can hold out to retirement the old way! • students are the best advocates for change • the system and curriculum is not designed for Web2.0, you have to change the methods of learning and assessment. Chalk and talk is ineffective. Discovery Learning engages students more effectively.
