The practice and profession of teaching developed in the presence of a great scarcity of knowledge. Ubiquitous information and ever more powerful search and knowledge engines have changed the proper role of universities, publishers, and education professionals. The diversity of empowering resources available to students has fundamentally changed their relationship to knowledge. Novel thinking is required to create learning materials and venues for this new world.

#E12_FS11 #EDU12 Novel thinking is required to create learning materials and venues for this new world. - Theodore Gray

RT @certtechpro: The age of information scarcity is over, the job of teaching is saving the world according to Theodore Gray #E12_FS11...

I have no idea what kind of math Theodore Gray is doing right now, but the interactivity component is very cool. #E12_FS11

Teachers are no longer the keepers of knowledge! So why are our universities structured as if they were? #E12_FS11 # edu12 @TheodoreGray

Diamonds are not forever, they are, in fact, flammable. #E12_FS11 # edu12 @TheodoreGray

#E12_FS11 #EDU12 One method to get people in science & math: Explain something that people recognize as a part of their world

2nd Method to get people into science & math is show them an interesting fact and help them realize they care about it. #EUD12 #E12_FS11

To keep people interested in science we need to stop making memorization the main task in science classes. #EUD12 #E12_FS11

#EUD12 #E12_FS11 Science is just not memorizing the periodic table.
