“Did I miss anything?”

  … that’s the blog title our College President uses.  While I’ve been generally favorably impressed by him, the answer is an unequivocal “YES” when he continues to post the rah-rah spin articles about Khan Academy and Developmental Math.   Gosh, the article says, students will learn the concepts because there are activities online that catch their errors in procedure!   

      I pulled stuff from my “Second Effort” post — which, by the way, was another online article that he posted out to Facebook and the world, garnering my then highest-number-of-visits. 

     Yes, he’s missed something… and while I’m reasonably sure he’ll continue doing so, I do feel compelled to be that little kid pointing at the nekkid emperor.   

  THe “How to Learn Math” class showed a neat video of a middle school math class where they were exploring the division of fractions. MOre on that later 😉
