Over the Pond and Through the Fiber #2: This international skypecast features educators from Canada, Scotland, and the United States defining and discussing the new story David Warlick has challenged us to help tell with our students. We probably raised more questions than we answered, but again it was exciting as well as empowering to engage in dialog with other educators passionate about teaching and learning in the 21st century. Some of the questions we raised and answered include: How can we get a critical mass of educators convinced of the efficacy of using web 2.0 tools? What is the new story? What is the impact of flat world technology on education? Why has the impact of flat world tech not been felt much in classrooms, and why isn’t it spreading faster? Is the real question more about teaching, learning, and assessment rather than technology? Why should teachers change the way they teach students using new technologies? How can we share our successes as well as failures with others? What technologies can serve as constructive amplifiers to support effective teaching and learning practices? Why is blogging transformative? How can teachers help students experience similar excitement and engagement through their use of read/write web tools to that described by many of us in this skypecast?
