Learning By Design?

Our group discussed the fact that traditional learning of technology does not resemble what the regular classroom has looked like. The stand and deliver theory of teaching is not conducive to intrinsic understanding of the use of tech.
The article advocates a learning by design model which encourages trial and error, self exploration filled with successes and failures to be surmounted. This produces a teacher who is confident enough to introduce her students to a multi-tech approach to learning. This teacher will have a broader knowledge base for teaching with authentic representations.
The examples that were given, encouraged us to further our own exploration and application of tech in the classroom
