Another dot in the blogosphere?

Connecting the dots

This artist’s process video reminded me of a principle in edtech implementation.

When you are a beginner, simply understanding separate concepts seems like the neat thing to do. This might include separate elements like technology skills, pedagogical strategies, educational psychology, and content knowledge.

The consummate skill is in knowing how to combine these separate dots into a coherent whole. For example, the TPACK framework connects pedagogy, content, technology, and context. The separate concepts need to be blended and blurred into each other.

But even TPACK does not provide all the dots or help an educator connect them. Just like the artist brings other tools, techniques, and his vision to to the canvas, so too must an educator who wishes to enable learning with technology.
