Blogs I like: Controversial Teaching Methods :D

The link below is from Learning with ‘e’s blog. It is a tongue in cheek reflection on ‘pencils’ and their possible use in education. It does make me ponder the changes in education over the last 100 years, and I wonder if the shift from the ‘slate’ to ‘paper’ was as controversial as the new technologies available today.

Learning with ‘e’s: A head teacher writes….

For example, was there special funding and professional development to show how the exercise book could be ‘intergrated’ into the class room? Were there teachers who found it difficult to shift from using slate? Was paper deemed to be automatically ‘engaging’ for students and used as a motivator within the classroom (eg If you finish your slate work, I will let you write on some paper…)?  I wonder….

Enjoy!
