Two Roads Diverged in a Yellow Wood

As an academic and a teacher, managing students with a lot of learning styles and abilities/intelligences, and new tools for learning, we are increasingly facing choices about how we manage the learning environment


And sorry i could not travel both
And sorry I could not travel both

Tools we traditionally associate with learning - notes, books, images, blackboards and chalk have history, they fit comfortably with our teaching.

New tools – technological gadgets can be difficult to keep apace with?


And be one traveller
And be one traveller

As learning becomes more accessible, the student profile is changing.

4.6% in Ireland,

In nursing, teacher training, medicine, engineering courses


Long i stood and looked down one as far i could
long I stoodAnd Looked Down oneAs far I could

Students with disabilities are taking courses we would never have thought possible.

A Nurse with one hand, A Teacher who is deaf, Engineer with visual impairment


To where it bent in the under growth
TO WHERE IT BENT IN THE UNDER GROWTH

There is a quiet revolution we need to embrace!

We must stop and think about teaching, learning and technology, How, Why, What for? Universal Design, what is it….

And most importantly, How much do I need to know????


Then took the other as just as fair
Then took the other as just as fair

When considering students with disabilities and the choices they are making,

it may (will) challenge our biases and presumptions.


And having perhaps the better claim
And having perhaps the better claim

We need to recognise students are

choosing courses that they believe they have the ability to study

and want a career in….just as their peers do.

Students - today - can engage in learning in a different way

and claim it in a way that suits them

I have a new amplified stethoscope!


Though as for that the passing there had worn them really about the same
Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same

But is not student success and high quality of education still what it is all about?


And both that morning equally lay
And both that morning equally lay about the same

Yet things cannot remain the same for any student

…Control – quality of education, appropriate usage of technologies,…Standards –what’s fair to all students?…Equality – what will this look like??


In leaves no step had trodden black
In leaves no step had trodden black. about the same

This is all new ground


Oh i kept the first for another day
Oh, I kept the first for another day! about the same

So with all the changes

– the primary objective is that all students with a diverse need can be the best that they can be – and that best will get better….


Yet knowing how way leads on to way
Yet knowing how way leads on to way, about the same

And now more than ever we need to share our learning,

our concerns, our experiences, our questions….


I doubted if i should ever come back
I doubted if I should ever come back about the same

Through this sharing and evolution we will all realize change…


I shall be telling this with a sigh
I shall be telling this with a sigh about the same

And sometime in the future…we will all be able to say we were part of this great change


Somewhere ages
Somewhere ages about the same


And ages hence
and ages hence: about the same



We took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference
.. about the same WE took the one less traveled byAnd that has made all the difference.


From the road not taken robert frost 1874 1963
FROM – THE ROAD NOT TAKEN, about the same ROBERT FROST, (1874–1963)

Robert Frost

four-time Pulitzer Prize winning American poet, teacher and lecturer.

Although he never graduated from college,

he received over 40 honorary degrees.

He also suffered from depression and a fear of public speaking


Thank you – Mary Quirke about the same
