drezac: Google Apps for Education and the Teacher's Process

Gagne's steps were based around the Information Processing theory, where the goal was to maximize retention of knowledge (most likely- rote knowledge)."
I like this post since it is firmly about quality teaching. It is in the same category as Andrew Church's fine work with Bloom's Taxonomy.
Our focus as teachers should always remain with how any tool will improve our teaching and student learning.
This post based on Gagne's work is a must-read.
