This is the course website for York College’s AC230 Summer course. This summer we are going to take inspiration from Jim Groom’s TEDxNYED talk this past spring for the theme of the class. The talk focuses on the false notions of crisis and absolute solutions in education.
This semester we’re not going to look to technology in education as a silver bullet, providing all the answers to all that ails education. Instead we going to focus on being creative, finding ways to teach ourselves to find and use new tools, express ideas, and get others to do the same. The approach will hopefully be an empowering one that equips you to be both resourceful as well as critical of the approaches that imagine simple big fixes with technology in education.
