I’ve been quietly following along with Bill’s documentation of work as he prepares a critique of Connectivism. He happened upon a slogan list for web2/learning2 and has posted what I think is a very important reflection on it. In it is a very usable slogan: I want teachers to become more like activists, not more like academics. I subscribe to this one BIG TIME. In fact, the best teachers that I have met, are the activists. The worst I have met are the academic. Another gross generalisation I know, but that’s the activist in me.
