Or thanks to commenter, Tony (of Ethnography.com--I can never tell if I should put that stuff. Yell at me if I shouldn't), we have this one:
"You are not a sage on the stage, but a guide by the side!"
Thanks, Tony. I, totally, snorted.
I will leave you with this thought. A dear friend and colleague of twenty years stopped by to chat. He has embraced the non-"broadcasting" model. I asked: "what, exactly, do you do now?" "Oh, I give them crossword puzzles." "Crossword puzzles?" "Sure, I divide them in groups and they fill them out together to learn the terms. Then I go over them the last ten minutes of class. It is, actually, much easier for me...and, you know, I just don't care anymore."
For every bad "broadcast" experience of 400 distracted students passively allowing words to wash over their rapidly-texting minds; I can find you a class of 30 students, pushed together in groups, rapidly-texting while one of their kind is forced to fill out a crossword puzzle.
Can we please have a more intelligent discussion than this mess.
I am looking at you Mr. NPR guest, Don Tapscott. (Read the comments.)
