Episode 2 – Pushing the Paradigm

Posted in: Ed Tech, Episodes, Kathy King, Mark Gura, Product Review

Episode 2 – Pushing the Paradigm

Today’s educational landscape ranges from slow to die 19th Century schoolhouse rituals to true 21st Century skills-based practices. This episode charts some of that territory, planting flags in particularly fertile soil and marking minefields to avoid. Mark and Kathy continue their celebration of those who explore and colonize the new world of an education fully aligned with digital technology and its resources and applications for learning and teaching.
