A New Educational Paradigm

Students


NO WALLS The “divide” between teacher and student is decreasing and blurring. Technology allows for both access to knowledge and delivery of that knowledge. There is no longer a “gatekeeper” in front of the house of knowledge. The classroom no longer has 4 walls. People do not need to enter and leave at set times. We are free to learn to the beat of our own drummer.


Learning is natural. Every student is always learning. But WHAT are they learning? Why not our curriculum?


The Digital Divide


What is Web 2.0?


Here are my recommended student / teacher websites for language education. All are beneficial to both instruction and learning, either alone or together.
