Hey Michael, I think you answered your own question: since all of us don’t teach school we can’t speak for that context with much accuracy. I used to teach ed tech to teachers here in Egypt and the value of open ed for THEM (the teachers) was clear but much more complex for their students, especially as they were not from privileged backgrounds and here in Egypt that’s a long way away from what it means in the US. So yes – teachers of k-12 need to contribute to the conversations with their own context. I am sorry that the group of people I chose are all higher ed or adult ed… In the next hangout I am hoping to have someone from corporate edu sector so that should also add a different perspective. Let’s see…
It’s interesting actually coz i do know a few ppl who work in k-12 like u and Kevin and Tania and Susan Watson. You all should do something about this 🙂 a twitter chat to follow up?
