Characteristics of 21st Century Teachers

I don’t always agree with Gary but he does have a capacity to shake up our thinking. In this case I think he has a point about how (not) to encourage reading, especially if we are at all concerned about the quality of what is being read.

Henry Jenkins makes some points that are relevant to several threads in my recent reading and thinking. Play is linked to creativity which is important when considering design in technology but those ideas are also linked to the ‘deep-play’ idea that has emerged around TPACK.
