Learning in the Age of Technology

Video

In have been spending a lot of time planning for the Attic blogging class and I just came across this great TEDTalk by educator and blogger Will Richardson. In the video, Richardson talks about the evolving nature of schooling in our modern world of information abundance. He explains that, now that the answers to most of our questions are only a Google search away, we need to rethink the role of classrooms. In a world where “we don’t really need school to do school,” he says that the true value of classrooms are their ability to teach kids how to be creative and persevering problem-solvers. I agree with him and I am hoping our blogging class can be just this type of classroom.
