Huh, Arne?

The continuing Arne chronicles....

The fact that we’re still teaching with a nineteenth century model makes no sense whatsoever....
 Ah, yes, the straw man again. Get ready for the punchline, here it comes....

That's why organizations like Khan Academy are so exciting.
Because they use 20th century technology to enhance 19th century pedagogy?

Duncan looks more and more like an ass, living in his Land of Toys.

Dear Andrew,

Nice post!

The sad thing is, KA is helpful to so many kids, at least in the sense of helping them survive in broken classrooms.

But it is pedagogically the same thing as a textbook.
