Today I spent the day in the great town of Newton, MA at the edubloggercon before the Alan November Conference. In many ways (and I say this with lots of love) it was an edtech therapy session. I think I was one of two(?) classroom teachers present. Alot of the conversation revolved around and came back to how to get other teachers aboard the 2.0 train. The day gave me a few ideas for posts which will come in the next few days. On my drive home I was trying to come up with an analogy for a question that no one asked–maybe because it would cross some kind of “line.” So I leave you with this analogy and look forward to posting some thoughts from the conference in the next couple of weeks–and maybe I will ask the question instead of hiding it in a cryptic analogy…
Doctor=tech ed staff
If a doctor is called in to to help a patient who is ailing and the patient dies after treatment there are two possible reasons.
1-Doctor gives the wrong treatment and the patient dies — Doctor’s fault
2-Doctor gives the right treatment and the patient dies — not doctor’s fault
Why did the patient die despite being given the right treatment?
