The Status Quo In Schools Is Over
Disruptive Innovation Is Already Here
In this powerful presentation to teachers, Scott McLeod, J.D. & Ph.D. shows us how and why schools and teaching are about to be transformed radically from disruptive technology, and it's a better idea to be on the side of change than to be caught with our heads in the sand.
McLeod races through this compelling and lively chat, and even though it runs about twenty minutes, it flies (most slides are only second or two) - but if you are really crunched, start about #65 but we recommend the background before it.
The one thing that felt strange and at the same time was consistent with his message was there was no iPad in his tech call-outs since this talk was given in December 2009 (at a NEA event - the largest teachers union - National Education Association). Who even imagined?!
