Sept 6 Asia Report.mp3
Last week Jeff Young of the Chronicle of Higher Ed visited Singapore as part of a month-long trip across Asia looking at technology in education. Today Jeff posted his latest column for the Chronicle (here) and I am also attaching this week's Asia report tot he FIR podcast where I offer a quick overview of the conversation.So what seems to be the main question? Simple, how do we take advantage of these new technologies and improve both skills and knowledge when, from a competing perspective, we must create an experience that is culturally appropriate and offers a safe space to learn? This is a tough line to walk, and I hope you enjoy what Jeff and others have to share. I also hope we can upload the panel discussion video in the near future as well.
