(yes this could be an indicator I need to get out more)
I think this youtube clip is a good place to start. A very good place. It positions us all as being part of the solution.
The anchor stones in the clip are; create, change and collaborate. Imagine a literacy or numeracy program focussed on creating, changing and collaboration. That would certainly put 'chalk and talk" methods of teaching on pause.
Am I making the steps towards knowledge building sound easy? Dr Suess once said... "Sometimes the questions are complex but the solutions are easy". I say one step at a time. Change one thing and do it with tenacity! Change a bit.. then another bit.. meet up with a colleague and change another bit together... then change another bit.
Am I brave enough to suggest...
"If literacy and numeracy classes fail to engage and make explicit creativity, change and collaboration then maybe its not worth doing".
