How many people in this video do you recognize or are familiar with their work?
Karen Greenwood-Henke, a fellow Beloit alum, sent me this CoSN video via Facebook today. I think it accurately captures the essence of how education needs to change. The first statistic about how education, among various fields, ranks dead last in IT intensiveness. While I’m not sure what constitutes “IT intensiveness”, this piece of information was news to me.
Incidentally, I recognized Karen’s name associated with a Net Day SpeakUp day survey a few years ago, and got in touch with her. Since then we’ve talked here and there, and it’s been fun to renew the acquaintance and talk shop. I am not sure either of us predicted 20 years ago that we’d be passionate about educational technology.
At any rate, please take a look!
