“Email is our personal to-do list that anybody adds to – whether they know us or not.”
Even more so – it seems acceptable to people to be annoyed with you for not responding to their emails.
Here’s the thing: I actually do care about responding to people. I will even take to emailing people I don’t know offering small bits of advice. I try to be helpful. But if I spent my day doing this – or many other email tasks – I’d never get ANYTHING else done. Just this evening I’ve done a shit-tonne of emails as those that received them from me can attest. My last one went out past midnight.

And tomorrow starts with another breakfast meeting. That’s my treadmill. And why I’ll never spend my entire life inside my email box.

Honestly, there is already a lot on my plate with teaching and research; however, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with Cole Camplese, Allan Gyorke, Brad Kozlek, and the rest of the TLT folks. (Note: Cole is a definite ‘early adopter’ and teaches a very popular course at Penn State on disruptive technologies.)

Mazur sold attendees at the recent Building Learning Communities conference on this new approach by first asking them to identify something they're good at, and then having them explain how they mastered it. After the crowd shared, Mazur pointed out that no one said they'd learned by listening to lectures. Similarly, Mazur said, college students don't learn by taking notes during a lecture and then regurgitating information. They need to be able to discuss concepts, apply them to problems and get real-time feedback. Mazur says Learning Catalytics enables this process to take place.

He found that in nearly identical classes, Canadian college students learned a lot more from teaching assistants using interactive tools than they did from a veteran professor giving a traditional lecture. The students who had to engage interactively using the TV remote-like devices scored about twice as high on a test compared to those who heard the normal lecture, according to a study published Thursday in the journal Science.

The real challenge in designing this game will be designing it so that there are many paths to success and and many paths to failure with all the mediums inbetween, while continually keeping the player informed on how they are doing in regards to the "expected achievements."

The decision by the MIT faculty in 2001 to allow anyone to use their course content was a seminal move, one that had a profound effect on democratizing education.
