The One Question They Don’t Ask

It’s weird. As an open classroom, my students and I get a lot of questions about our use of technology, particularly new and emerging ones such as iPads and iPods. The most common are, at times, getting excruciatingly common.

Aren’t you afraid of losing them?

Who paid for it?

What’s your favourite device?

How do you stop the kids from getting distracted?

The one question we don’t get enough of is:

How is this changing the way you learn?



  1. It’s hard to ask questions about things you don’t understand. We see the technology as another tool for learning. Outsiders see the object not the function of the object. How do we become better advocators form our students?

  2. Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know.

    Dear Students,
    How is your learning different this year? How is it the same as it has always been? What would you still change? What would you keep the same? What excites you now? What still bores you? Why?

    Venn diagrams are welcome.
