Constructivist 1.5

Julie Lindsay speaks about the Nextgen Teachers:

"What we are doing is taking the best pedagogical constructivist approach, wrapping it in holistic, multicultural and global learning and tying a neat Web 2.0 bow around it."

Just don't know how that can be effective.

Picture this. Brian C. Gray reports that the U.S. House of Congress (H.R. 1120) is considering a social networking bill again, which, among other moral panicky things, "withholds federal e-rate funding from libraries and schools that do not restrict the use of social networking websites by minors."

Seems like the price of progress is openness.
