Ever sat in a meeting where people want to know the answer, or want to find the ‘way’ to do something or where to find more information about the ‘thing’? It seems we spend a great deal of time trying to come up with the right answer. I have a problem. I want to figure out how to get people to consider teaching with technology, rather than avoiding it and finding reasons not to. I’m sure what I need isn’t what you need, and as embark on a couple of weeks thinking about the problem, and generating ideas … I thought I’d attempt, or invite everyone to share an idea. It doesn’t matter how hard or simple, just one idea that someone else might use to teach with technology.
I’ve created an open Google Group at http://groups.google.com/group/1000-ways-to-teach-with-technology, with a single conversation.
You can feed off it, add to it or discuss it … but I hope that you’ll add just one idea to the list. I figured that there must be 10,000 ideas a day I miss on Twitter as I’m asleep … so perhaps this 1000 ideas group will in some way capture what people are thinking – what is important etc.,
Being a Google group you can ‘star’ rate ideas too – so it should be fun. Thanks for your input – as apparently crowd sourcing is the way to go.
If you then want to use this in your own PD sessions, please feel free.
