I’d like to thank Esther Iglich for sharing this article about teaching with technology. It hits *exactly* what I’ve been trying to do in my course in Roman Art this semester — figure out a way to have the students learning, but actively engaged in the process without my having to lecture. The article, entitled “A Socrates Redux in the BYUI Learning Model,” can be accessed here.
The article was written by Trent Batson, who has served as an English professor, director of academic computing, and has been an IT leader since the mid-1980s. He is currently executive director of The Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL, http://www.aaeebl.org), a new professional association for the ePortfolio community. He is the former Chair of the Board of the Open Source Portfolio Initiative, and Senior Contributing Editor for Campus Technology’s Web 2.0 e-newsletter.
