This video, forwarded to me by ShellTerrell on Twitter, is something that many of us already understand, but many administrative individuals do not. Those of us who work ‘in’ education understand these concepts (“the death of education, the dawn of learning” as Stephen Heppell says), but those who work ‘for’ education (administrators, planners, managers, chancellors, etc) may not yet have had the time to grasp these concepts.
“Every turned-off device [phone, netbook, etc] is potentially a turned-off child [learner]” Stephen Heppell.
“… it’s the death of education but it’s the dawn of learning, and that makes me very happy.” Stephen Heppell.
There are some very excellent quotes from this video, too many to write here, so please watch this video and take from it what suits you and your interests.
