Why new technologies could never replace great teaching

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it
Technology in education gets plenty of hype, but let's not forget the importance of teaching and learning, says Pamela Wright

 

So where do I stand as an educator, as a leader in education? The centre point of my passion is a philosophy that I instil into my staff, into the school and into every school I support. It is the child – first and foremost.

 

Teachers don't simply teach concepts and skills. Any new technology can do that.

 

Good teachers inspire our young people to be lifelong learners, creating a culture of independent enquiry with their enthusiasm and passion. I know this because I see it every day. Good teachers have the skills to know exactly how to get the best out of each and every young person in their care.

How Digital Learning Is Becoming The Fourth Literacy - Edudemic | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it
Reading. Writing. Math. Those are the big ones, right? Up until recently, a lot of people would have probably said that was correct. But since it is 2013 and so much of our lives happen online, digital literacy is being added to the list.
Heather Peretz's insight:

Digital Literacy spans all Curriculum areas and should not be considered separate and apart from other literacies it is an integral piece of the other literacies.

Heather Peretz's insight:

"Assistive technology in K-12 classrooms, by definition, is designed to "improve the functional capabilities of a child with a disability." While the word "technology" automatically conjures up images of cutting-edge electronics, some assistive technology is possible with just simple accommodations. Whether high-tech or simple in design, assistive technology has the ability to transform the learning experiences for the children who benefit."
