Notations On Week 1//Preparing 4 Week 2 @ #OCL4Ed

The notion of a reflective practitioner is a fact of life in my work as an Educator.   As I have continued to think about the extent of the work here and the "Freedom", I see no other way around it.   The continued revolution, though, that we are deliberating in OCL4ED is overwhelming in a major way.

What is being reflective?  It is by having a sense of the World and recognizing how a "World View" helps to transform us as we know it today.   Theory is wonderful and embracing it is very much part of the Educational Experience.  However, Theory without fact and a realistic sense of where things are will not serve to educate and enhance the level of knowledge necessary for ultimate success.

There is one challenge in reflective education.  That challenge has to do with the simple notion of subjectivity. Sometimes one's experience does allow a sense of  tunnel vision which may prove to be detrimental to the essence of Education itself.   That's the dilemma that we have to balance as we keep an open mind.

So much to still reflect upon as we continue our ongoing dialogue here in #OCL4Ed.
