This week’s readings and videos make a strong case for much needed change for learning in the 21st century. Chapter 2 of the course text and the interactive media component present forces of resistance to change, and Chapter 2 proposes a “new balance” of teaching and learning practices that will help educators to meet 21st century goals. Consider the forces of resistance in your work or school environment. How can this new balance of educational practices help you and your colleagues to respond effectively to forces of resistance?
Write a description of two or three forces of resistance that exist in your environment/practice. Suggest ways in which the new balance of teaching and learning practices can help to create an educational community less resistant to change.
