"Inverted Classrooms" or "Peer Instruction"
mobile devices: the medium is the message
"the most important impressions made on the human nervous system come from the character and structure of the environment within which the nervous system functions; that the environment itself conveys the critical and dominant messages by controlling the perceptions and attitudes of those who participate in it." (Postman, 1969)
perceptions you are allowed to build
attitudes you are enticed to assume
sensitivities you are encouraged to develop
Lean to value uncertainty & tentativeness

Question the questions
"Here is the point: Once you have learned how to ask questions —relevant and appropriate questions— you have learned how to learn and no one can keep you from learning whatever you want or need to know." (Postman, 1969)
"Media Agnostic"
general education -- liberal arts
intro-level courses -- 'covering' material
upper-level courses -- project-based
