"You can't teach people everything they need to know. The best you can do is position them where they can find what they need to know when they need to know it."-Seymour Papert

"Learners need to be producers, not just consumers. Learning styles are always oriented to reception. Many are auditory learners but visual producers or other combinations. We need application of “learning styles” for more than just the act of reception, but also that of creation." - Marcos Torres




Video Examples of the Technology Spectrum:
The Technology and Learning Spectrum, borrowed by Bernajean Porter, is a framework for understanding different types of technology use. The framework is divided into the categories of literacy, adapting, and transforming.
