Good Teachers Talk: Better Teachers Listen | Class Teaching
The post is more interesting, to me, than the title.

> One way of achieving this identify shift is to come unprepared to a lesson! For example, working on a poem in English that neither the pupils nor the teacher have read before. In doing so, pupils begin to see that their identities can fluctuate from learner to contributor, thus giving them the confidence to enact this discourse themselves in the classroom and beyond.

Which speaks to vocalising your process. I do that (I hope) in writing, but not so much in reading.

Code Monster from Crunchzilla
Code Monster from Crunchzilla is live Javascript programming for fun. The focus is on action. Code changes immediately yield visible results.

Projects start with simple boxes and colors, rapidly progressing into exciting experiments with simple animation and fractals. Important programming concepts like variables, loops, conditionals, expressions, and functions are introduced by example.

Code Monster is a gentle and fun introduction to programming concepts. It is a first step in learning to program. It is not intended to teach all of computer science and programming.

The school that swapped its laptops for iPads… and wants to switch back | PC Pro blog

There is an its not all bad section and some of the comments correct some of the school's mistakes. I guess the lesson is know what you are getting into.

Tony Bates » What’s right and what’s wrong about Coursera-style MOOCs
Myth 4: Computers personalize learning No, they don’t. They allow students alternative routes through material and they allow automated feedback but they do not provide a sense of being treated as an individual. This can be done in online learning, but it needs online intervention and presence in the form of discussion, encouragement, and an understanding of an individual student’s needs. The TED lecture omitted any discussion of completion rates. Again, this should not be the measure of MOOCs, but if you are going to argue that this form of teaching is superior to other forms of online learning, then discussion of completion rates becomes valid. Daphne Koller’s final comment is telling: ‘We should spend less time at universities filling our students’ minds with content by lecturing at them, and more time igniting their creativity … by actually talking with them.’ However, that requires the presence of a teacher, either in the class or online.
