What are our main activities as teachers? What do we DO?
We socialize students into intellectual adulthood
What do we tell a student says "I know this material already; just let me submit the papers and take the exams to prove it"?
Why don't we just establish a national curriculum board of top scholars in each field, record first-rate documentary film lectures, and make the lectures available over the internet via an official Coursera?
What do we do if a for-profit company demonstrates that it can deliver knowledge (skills, etc.) more effectively for a lower price?
Education as Socialization:
Wikipedia in the Classroom
The internet is part of life, not an educational tool
Every assignment should serve multiple goals
View from the producer side
Make some friends
Find people who can help
Connect with people online
Literally any topic in the world
Insight into a daily use tool
3-part assignment on "Deindustrialization"
Use Wikipedia to explore the social structure, economy, and current events of an OECD country
Use official OECD data as the basis for a report on deindustrialization in that country
Summarize the trajectory of deindustrialization in 100 words for a Wikipedia country sub-entry
