Since we are not having class on Wednesday, November 19 we will engage in a discussion assignment.

By Friday, November 21 at 8:00 PM watch Humans Need Not Apply (YouTube, 15:01) and create an initial post on our course Blackboard discussion space that answers the following questions.

  1. Do you agree with the point that this video is trying to make? Why or why not?
  2. How does this idea impact teaching?
  3. What do you need to do to prepare your students for this future world?
  4. What do you need to do to prepare yourself for this future world?

Then over the next week and a half continue to participate in the discussion by responding and commenting on other students' posts before 3:00 PM on Tuesday, December 2. I am looking for proof that you engaged in the discussion in a meaningful and substantial way. Keep in mind our past discussion expectations, consider those a minimum expectation.

Please make sure you have read the NMC Horizon Report: 2014 K-12 Edition before you arrive to class on Wednesday, December 3. We will be using this to guide our discussion.
