Rethinking Education

Lloyd Rieber‘s presentation, What’s in a Name?, during the PIDT Conference has caused me to carefully reconsider the terms that we use to describe teaching, learning, and what it is that educators do. I’ll say no more at this time to avoid influencing the data.

This poll is a means of gaging the collective thinking of educators everywhere. Please disseminate this broadly to get as representative a sample as possible.

This poll will close at 11:59 PM CST on June 6, 2008.

P.S.: I’ve decided to try out Zoho Polls with this activity. They do everything else so well I’m betting that this goes well, too.

  1. A. Mercer,

    This poll came straight from the back channel during Lloyd’s presentation. I don’t think I modified it at all. I like your suggestions and will consider implementing them in the future. Thanks for sharing them.

    All the best,

  2. Hmm, can I suggest a ranking system 1-5, instead of “most important”. You can miss a lot by forcing a single decision (sorta like in single member vs. proportional rep voting). Also, where is reflection? Big part of why I blog.
