In this first podcast for 2007, I outline seven different reasons educators should consider being constructively, digitally disruptive in 2007. These include 1) Strong reasons for changing our prevalent educational paradigm, 2) Change requires disruption to the status quo, 3) Digital technologies can provide differentated means to engage each learner in the educational process, 4) Emphasizing collaborative learning and technologies which promote collaboration, 5) Enhanced personal digital competencies carry over to professional practices, 6) Modeling lifetime/lifelong learning activities, 7) Designing instructional interactions (lessons) which follow the revised model of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
