Why are still teaching that?
A few weeks before the end of I had a conversation with a colleague about thermometers.
I had been to the doctor the previous day, and remarked that the nurse was using a digital thermometer to measure my temperature.
Yet my colleague was getting reading to teach.. yep you guessed it, a lesson on using old school thermometers.
It’s there in the curriculum but the people who measure temperatures on a daily basis aren’t using the tools we are teaching now.
Which leads me to wonder how much old school technology is sitting there in the curriculum that we continue to teach because ‘that’s we we’ve always done…’
What are teaching now that will likely be obsolete in the next 10 years?
