teaching

Random posts ahead!

After an academic year of teaching and also giving urgent feedback on templates it feels like I am finally surfacing after a deep dive, the sun is shining and I have ideas for blog posts again.

First, a recent video with a few thoughts of education and technology.

The point is that education technology can be very useful. However, we should not make voice-over-powerpoint video’s to replace the lecturer, but rather to amplify him/her. Being the lecturer is about much more than talking through the course content.

In this TED talk Ken Robinson makes the point much more eloquently.
