spring fever

Last Thursday, the first day of spring began this year, and most of us are itching to get out and about in the warmer weather. Faculty are certainly feeling it in the classroom; they don’t need a calendar to tell them it’s that time of year again. However, it’s not a far stretch to say that spring fever is the norm–a constant state–in the classroom where more and more students, if not their teachers, begin to feel that the real learning is not taking place in the classroom, that the real learning is out there, and could actually be got to if only we could get out of the classroom.

Robert Cringely, in his PBS column I, Cringely, discusses the overthrow of the school system as we have always known it, by the students who use technology constantly in every aspect of their lives except at school. Read about the revolution.
