edtech podcast #9: data data everywhere and not a drop to drink

In episode #9 Brian & I use a recent conference he attended on Clickers to explore issues related to teaching practices. We discuss issues such as the apparent conflict teachers face when deciding how to teach their students. Do they teach for student happiness or do they teach for learning? Are these mutually exclusive options? Is it a problem of the education structure? Or is it a reaction toward the way we’ve moved as a society? We also take some time to discuss the ethical considerations we must consider when piloting in the classroom with real students when the stakes are high. What responsibility do we have to ensure we do not have a negative impact on the student experience? Does this conflict with our responsibility to conduct research that furthers teaching & learning practice? As always, your input is welcome.
