OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR: Want to Ruin Teaching? Give Ratings
A government-run teacher evaluation bureaucracy would be a disaster for the teaching profession — and thus the future of public education — in our country.
As a teacher of British and American literature in a private 1:1 laptop school, my own education never ends. Here I record my experiences learning and teaching with web 2.0 applications in my classroom.
It has always been deep in our nature to want
to break the chains in which we were bound by birth.
Each law of physics or nature is like a taunt,
or an obstacle as old as mother Earth.
But no walls ever built will always last,
for we were all born to break them down,
doing what we have done throughout our past;
reinventing ourselves and breaking new ground.
Sure, technology is not always right,
but it’s few failures are easy to forgive.
And anyone who, against it, puts up a fight,
forgets that technology allows them to live.
