“I prefer teaching with the limitations of no class sets, because it means we’re constantly reflecting on the merits of each tool for the given purpose.”
As I think about the skills that our students will need most, I am sure that flexibility and adaptability will be at the top of the list. I think the best option for students would be a buffet of options where they can choose which option is best for them and the task at hand. I am worried that we will be handicapped by traditional thinking and forget that the question of which device is best or which tool is best to perform a particular task will never again have a static answer.
This whole thing is a moving target that I don’t ever see stopping. We need to make sure that we are helping our students see beyond the device or resource of the day and keep their eyes open for what comes next.
