I located this quote/photo on George Couros’s blog, Principal of Change. Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to engage with a variety of educators on the topic of teaching and learning with technology. The above quote from Clay Shirky reminded me of the limited view so many educators have of how technology can impact learning. Too many educators stop their thought process at the idea of using technology simply to access static information instead of emphasizing connection and access to active minds. Engaging active minds invites inquiry and deeper learning and understanding. I’d say this distinction is a fairly significant hurdle for school leaders and educators in general to get over before we really see transformational uses of technology.
