Yeah, I’ll buy that.
But for history, economics, art, language arts, I think this guy nailed it pretty well.
Uh, it is a bit more complicated than that, at least in some situations. Example: when I teach differential equations, I sometimes do some examples and have them do those examples with technology, in part, so they can learn to apply technology to problems they haven’t seen before.
So in this case, fluency with technology IS a learning outcome with this crowd, even if it is not formally stated on the syllabus.
