Seth Godin ended his post yesterday with this idea
I confess that I’m amazed when I meet hard-working, smart people who are completely clueless about how their industry works, how their tools work…
It never made sense to be proud of being ignorant, but we’re in a new era now. Look it up.
I’m also amazed at the number of smart, hard-working teachers and administrators I meet who are largely clueless about technology. Both the tools available to improve their professional practice as well as the devices being carried by many of their students that could be leveraged in the service of learning.
What’s worse is that many of them are still proud of their ignorance. Or at least of their unwillingness to expand their ideas of what learning could be.
