After viewing a comment by Alannah, a fellow 3100 student, I started to wonder how all the learning styles are accommodated for in a digital world.
If you are a visual or audio learner, you are well coverted.
How does the kinaesthetic learner manage in a digital world?
Further to this post, I wonder about handwriting skills and spelling strategies. Do we need these in a digital world where we can type almost everything and spell check reassures us our words are formed correctly. Corinne has posted on her page about the death of handwriting. Is this the case? Are we spending valuable teaching time on a skill that students may not need in their digital worlds. We do type almost everything and then we spell check it. Is spelling another obsolete skill still being taught?
And yes, just before I post this I will hit the ABC button to double check I have not made any spelling errors……
