Making the Case for Change

One of the many education blogs in my RSS reader is Jose Picardo's Box of Tricks. Today, I found an excellent video that Jose recently created titled I Teach, Therefore You Learn... or Do You? The video makes a good case for embracing changes in teaching methods through the use of technology. One of the points Jose make that I can see myself using when talking to those reluctant to change is; we don't ask students to read hand-written documents, yet we still ask them to produce much of their work that way. I encourage you to watch the video and check out Jose Ricardo's Box of Tricks for more ideas about using technology in the classroom.

The video is embedded below.
