2016

2016 is rapidly coming to a close.  It has been a year of hibernation for my services due to an extended maternity leave.  Nevertheless, whenever there is a little time, my mind wonders what the digital revolution means for learning and education today. The many examples of how it has informed or misinformed the users during political elections and referendums are food for thought.  The taking away of the human face in replacement of digital capabilities need further investigation.

My daughter started primary school and this brings about the question of how the education establishment  is measuring up to the multimodality in assessment and whether any changes is evident in teacher’s speak and curriculum.   Furthermore, some parents question if at all their children are being inspired in the present delivery of education.  How much the breakaway from traditional classroom environments is supported or indeed influenced by digital tools and methodology in learning. Are our children being short-changed by the inability of schools to innovate and understand the issues concerning skills they need for the present and future world?

Time marches on so rapidly and if we do not stop to reflect and question, we let external circumstances run the show and nothing changes.
