I’d just read this essay yesterday morning (Antero Garcia did amazing things with “at risk” high school kids and digital media when he was a high school teacher and is now doing great things as a college teacher) in which he talked about introducing many tools early in a course. “No problem”, I thought. “He had 50 minute periods. I have 3 hours”.
And then I watched the clock tick away last night, thinking, dam*.
There is absolutely no good way to predict the timing of this new sort of teaching. That’s just the way it is.
And it’s still worth doing.
