Re: Curriculum/Syllabus


Date: Sat Jul 24 2004 - 13:22:53 PDT

Bless you both, Jackie and Woody. I have no intention of letting a software program dictate the way I teach. My reason for ranting and raving today is that I am angry about the number of hours I will have to spend creating a lengthy document (which I still see as useless)for every course that I teach. We are presently guided by excellent syllabi. We are cognizant of both the national and our state standards, as well as Ye Olde Bloom, and our syllabi reflect those precepts. I feel that the powers that be have been sold a glitzy software package and "a bill of goods" (what in the world does that mean?) by some glib techno-salesman, and now, voila, we are mandated to use it. Later, (I feel my blood pressure rising) J.

p.s. I'm still interested to read any positive feedback from someone who has actually used such a software program as the one put out by EdVision, and is a fan. It will probably be to my advantage if I can return to school in two weeks with a positive attitude. Smiley faces all around.
