Food For Thought

In Dr. Alec Couros’ short post Tips Up or Tips Down?, Couros recounts a missed learning opportunity with his son. 

The post is a powerful reminder that we as teachers and parents need to foster and deepen our students’ curiosity.  Technology can provide simple answers in an instant.  However, often more important than the answer is how we use our minds to find, discover, search, and create.  Technology is great, but when it replaces thinking it can become more of a hindrance than a help in the process of learning.

Again, Tips Up or Tips Down? is short, but it is well worth the quick read.


  1. Hi Margaret,
    Thanks for the link to my post. However, I just wanted to point out that the link in your post goes to my 'about' page rather than the post itself. The proper links should be http://educationaltechnology.ca/couros/2287 ... Thanks, and all the best!

    1. Whoops! Thank you for pointing that out. It's fixed now.
