The Future of Education?

Having just found this Ning, I was asked why I wanted to join the "Future of Education?" I was intriqued immediately by the question as my first response was " Why wouldn't I?" and its follow-up question "Why wouldn't EVERY teacher?"

This question has been pushing me to my "leading edge" (Thanks Joelle!) for quite some time now.

What IS the future of education? I think it is reigniting educational curiosity, questioning truths while respecting others, and developing ethical…

Hola a todos

Hola a todos desde Santiago, Chile....con algo de frío, pero arropado en mi familia...mi idea de unirme a TFoE es aprender y conocer de experiencias innovadoras en educación, que puedan ser aplicadas a la enseñanza de la medicina.

Pese a poder  entender y expresarme en inglés, lo haré permanentemente en mi viejo y mal castellano/español/chileno...y sí, es por porfía y orgullo....el sur también existe....

Cariños a todos.

What house do you live in?

It might seem odd to begin a blog post with this title but hopefully you will find that the analogy is quite apt.

We all live in houses. However, the style, the quality, the fittings, the size, and the neighbourhoods that our houses are in are all different. It seems to be a trend in most countries that many people aspire to the larger house, the higher quality fittings, the expensive neighbourhoods, the more impressive styles, and so on. It would be a rare person that aspires to a…

What’s a Community-Wide Cloud Computing Academy?

Learning new things everyday is one of the fun things about being involved I had never heard of a cloud-computing academy until I met Conor (an ETG user). He has some interesting and ambitious goals that I think everyone involved in education would be interested to…

Carrots and sticks may work for Donkeys, but...

Recently, the Federal Government announced a big carrot for teachers in the form of performance pay.  The top ten percent of teachers are going to receive a big bonus.  


The first point I wish to make is about the whole carrot and stick analogy itself.  The idea stems from the donkey who has the carrot held just in front of him, but as he moves, so does the carrot, as the person…
