Education Rethink: Ten Myths About Technology @edrethink

Education Rethink: Ten Myths About Technology @edrethink | 21st Century Literacy | Scoop.it

John Spencer: "The following are ten myths I have found myself believing over the years:

 

Myth #1: Technology Dehumanizes...

Myth #2: Technology is Neutral...

Myth #3: Technology Makes Us Relevant...

Myth #4: We Can Use It Wisely...

Myth #5: Technology Saves Time...

Myth #6: Technology Is Just a Tool...

Myth #7: Technology Happens in a Vacuum...

Myth #8: Technology Equals Innovation...

Myth #9: "It's Not About the Tech"...

Myth #10: Technology Makes Us More Creative...

 

The bottom line: Technology has its place. Simply rejecting it outright is as dangerous as accepting it blindly. The point is to think critically about it and to do so with a sense of humility.

Marc Crompton's insight:

Some good discussion points here. Not a full argument for any of them excellent fodder for further thought.
