I liked some of the ideas in the Learning for the 21st Century article. The two things that jumped out at me were "Making content relevant to student lives" and "Problem solving". This view adapts to the Contructivist's point of view. This approach would engage students and get them more involved in their learning.
As far as should this group business be making these recommendations. I can't say I agree with everything in the article, I think there some ideas that we can use. If we are looking at businesses to finance technology, they are difinitely going to want to have input into the educational process. Should they have this input? I don't they should have final say on anything, but we should be able to use their expertise as we see fit.Posted by krieg061 at July 14, 2005 12:15 PM
