Frank Corbo Posted over 4 years ago What is the difference between education done by computer videos and the real life version, and which is better? I can see how this approach is helpful to students who are learning procedures, manipulations and facts. Where is the critical thinking? The creative problem solving? That part of the learning equation is a function of the dialog that takes place between and among students and teacher and results from probing questions from a skilled teacher that drives the thinking deeper and makes connections with other key concepts. It's a very dynamic process and it's about the questioning aimed at uncovering students thinking about a procedure or concept.
