Shelly Blake-Plock Challenges Educators to Teach Paperless


Shelly Blake-Plock is a progressive educator and blogger for Teach Paperless. Blake-Plock blogs regularly on "all aspects of paperless, digital, and technological culture as it relates to education." In addition to his blog, Blake-Plock teaches high school Latin and Art History - completely paperless.


Why paperless? He clarifies, "I'm against the static idea of knowledge that paper so often represents. That's not where the future is...online assignments are naturally dynamic. I do this because that's what the kids understand. They are already living the post-paper knowledge life. They understand that in the future, (and the future is now), knowledge is dynamic and collaborative."
