Try It…It’s Delicious!


What does this image have to do with discovering del.icio.us? Well, besides carrots being delicious (especially those on a stick?). If you check out the del.icio.us account I’m developing, you’ll see that I’ve started by gathering information on researcher Alfie Kohn’s work. Kohn’s research deserves some serious attention, and his books (including No Contest: The Case Against Competition and Punished by Rewards: The Trouble with Gold Stars, Incentive Plans, A’s, Praise, and Other Bribes) really have tested traditional views of what is beneficial in education and in programs and activities that support youth. He challenges the “carrot and stick” model of education, rewards-based programs, and other common models of how we support students. Viva la revolution, Alfie! We’ll see how delicious my account gets…
