Two different but related things
1. My friend Brandy recently revamped her own blog and I think it’s great! It’s called Cognitive Informalist, and concerns how we learn in informal or unplanned settings, especially through games and interactional media.
2. In the debate in the comments section of my last post, I’m being told by an old friend that I’m wrong about what’s going on in schools these days. And it’s just possible; I might be. So if you are a teacher, or a parent with kids in school, or have some other sort of inside view of what’s actually going down in classrooms lately, and your school is trying something radical or exciting to foster independence, critical thinking, creativity, and respect for individual learning desires, I would love to hear about it! The comments section, as always, is open.
