“I can do that without technology”- Actually, no you can't! The rant, I can’t, the elephant, and the ant. David Truss http://pairadimes.davidtruss.com Originally created for BLC08
the rant Screaming for help by noamgalai / Noam Galai on flickr
That day is now dawning;  we are on the brink of a new era.  James Shimabukuro
That day is now dawning;  we are on the brink of a new era.  I predict that, in the foreseeable future,  we will look back to the year 2005 and wonder  how learning could have ever taken place in the  jail cells that passed for classrooms.  James Shimabukuro
I predict that, in the foreseeable future,  we will look back to the year 2005 and wonder  how learning could have ever taken place in the  jail cells that passed for classrooms.  Schools and colleges in the coming decades  will be characterized by a new sense of  freedom that will make today's campuses  seem like medieval dungeons.  James Shimabukuro

Another rant… “But there isn’t enough time!”
Another rant… “But there isn’t enough time!” How true is this statement? “The task of organizing and operating a huge and complex educational machinery has left us scant leisure for calm reflection.”
Irving Babbitt (1865-1933) was an academic and literary critic, noted for his founding role in a movement that became known as the New Humanism.  “The task of organizing and operating a huge and complex educational machinery has left us scant leisure for calm reflection.”
Keep the rants coming… Students today depend  too much upon ink. They don't know how to use a pen knife to sharpen a pencil.  Pen and ink will never replace the pencil. National Association of Teachers Journal, 1907
Students today depend on these expensive fountain pens. They can no longer write with a straight pen and nib. Students today depend on these expensive fountain pens. They can no longer write with a straight pen and nib. We parents must not allow them to wallow in such luxury to the detriment of learning how to cope in the  real business world which is not so extravagant. From PTA Gazette, 1941

Digital Exposure  http://fon.gs/digitalexposure/ If Paige engages with ‘toys’ like this, what will she expect from learning tools? Remember this quote? “That day is now dawning;  we are on the brink of a new era…” What is she going to expect from schools?
Everybody please cross your arms…

Everybody please cross your arms… Keep them crossed and read the next slide...
“As a general rule, adults are much more likely to act their way into a new way of thinking than to think their way into a new way of acting.”  Surfing the Edge of Chaos pg. 14
Still have your arms crossed?  For many people switching arms is uncomfortable, but the act of switching and staying switched, makes it more comfortable.  You’ve acted your way into a new way of thinking…
