One quick quote from Len Sweet

Postmodern Pedagogy – "the Google generation does not need authority figures to access information – it is no longer, “me big jar and you little mug” ; “I will give you whatever I decide to give you – you catch my droppings”.   It is a NEW WORLD NOW – young people don’t need authority figures – there is no more lecture drill – a “guide/mentor” organizes journeys – the ultimate syllabus are the students – it is about leading a course not a class – a course is a journey that will end someplace surprising.  Students need need to process/assess/discern NOT assimilate previously unknown information."

Good words…good man…hate his hair but that’s another story!  See for yourself!
