As usual, good reading. All I can add is that too many education initiatives are driven by the wrong motives or fuel. Rather than supporting creative teachers using sound pedagogy and proven behaviors, executives dictate ‘initiatives’ as reform or curriculum upgrading when all it really is is a product being or ‘system’ being sold. So many new systems are wolves in she eps clothing. I’ve seen too many software packages that require hardware and system upgrades that are no better than cardboard flashcards! People long removed from the classroom reality buy products like textbooks without asking the deeper questions or assessing needs. Etextbooks carry a whole set of new issues many educators AND administrators have not considered.
I am in favor of etextbooks that change frequently and/ or act only as reference and not daily reading. Save a few trees why not.
