We’ve all heard the saying, “information is power.” That being said, sometimes too much information makes you feel powerless. Take for example, my experience making lasagna. I needed a good recipe for lasagna one night. So, I googled “great lasagna recipes.” I got 247 great lasagna recipe posts. Completely overwhelmed by the amount of information, I quickly closed my computer and ordered pizza. The lasagna would have to wait for another night.
同样是在课堂上如此。学生和教师可以通过目前可用的信息量被完全淹没。寻找成功的正确的平衡可能会非常棘手。如果教师超负荷自己的学生，他们很可能会关闭。如果他们选择了错误的主题或使用错误的内容，学生可以失去兴趣。这就是为什么CLiC(Classroom in Context)在课堂上这样一个有价值的工具。
