Day 2 of color and it has not become any easier of a concept to grasp. Was asked a great question on why computers use additive synthesis and RGB instead of what nature does with subtractive synthesis and the primary colors. I do not fully know the answer. So is this a teachable moment. Is this what we now understand to be the 21st Century class. Students can know more than teachers, the teacher facilitates and guides the conversation to lead in a particular direction.
I failed at that. I did not let the conversation get too far "of course" and now I am asking myself "What is the course?"
I know I have curriculum to get through, but if meaningful learning can come out of a discussion and or research, that is not in the daily "lesson" than is it all bad?
I am thinking more and more that it is not.
So tonight and tomorrow along with Project EASIER, I am going to be re-evalutating my role and position in the classroom.
