I think this is a great project and one that we seriously need to get addressed. I don’t know how critical I am going to be in this response. Mostly I’m just reacting to your ideas as I just looked over the series of stories you had posted. We definitely need to rethink what it means to educate teachers in the 21st century, and we definitely need a greater focus on digital literacies. I noticed in one of your posts that you referenced Teachable. Is that one of the platforms you are considering using? My concern with those platforms is that although they make a great vehicle for getting content out they are very passive.

I emailed someone at Teachable once with some questions about what the platform could or could not do and was told they are all about “passive learning.” I think that’s a drawback because how will students who take your course interact with each other?

Like what you read? Give LeighAHall a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
