What should be the first two problems addressed in order to begin educational reform? (via Rliberni’s Blog – Radical language)

This was the guest post I was asked to contribute following #edchat on 13th July 2010 (17:00 – 18:00 my time!). It will be interesting to see what kind of response, if any, it provokes. I must admit it is quite an interesting experience to have to go back and look at what was said from a critical or dispassionate point of view. I have occasionally revisited archived chats to remind myself of links, or gone back to try and trace through what a particular sub-stream was discussing, while I was engaged in responding to others, but I still find it staggering that people retweet things within 10 or 20 seconds of their first appearance, without comment, or that they don’t go back and revisit earlier points that have been allowed to die off or get completely ignored. I’m sure it’s not just me that feels this, but at least the archive is there for people to come back to you after the event, and explore opportunities that they may have missed or failed to pick up on at the time. In some ways, too, it has made me try to reflect a little more on what the best way to participate in this kind of discussion – particularly from the perspective as one of the moderators of #mathchat… Feel free to comment here or on the main post!

  2. Excellent goods from you, man. I’ve remember your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely excellent.
    I actually like what you’ve acquired right here, really like what you’re stating and the way during which you say
    it. You’re making it entertaining and you still care for
    to keep it smart. I can’t wait to learn much more from you.
    This is actually a great website.
