All teachers are learners - All learners are teachers » Blog Archive » Teacher 2.0 ? Have we gone label mad?
This is another must-read post by Lauren O'Grady. As usual, she has identified a topical issue and explored it honestly. After you look closely at this post, have a read of and comment on her many other substantial posts. My comment on this post was:
This is a very thought-provoking post. I felt challenged by the sentiments and that is what great bloggers do.
I do like the 2.0 label and I try to use it to provide the opportunity for teachers and leaders to articulate what quality teaching with 2.0 applications can achieve in terms of enhanced teacher and student learning.
However, you are right about buzzwords. They can be a distraction away from the main game of teaching especially if it just comes down to an exploration of a "tool" without a practical learning purpose in mind.
