How technology is changing the skills we need to learn

How technology is changing the skills we need to learn | 21st Century School Libraries | Scoop.it

A while back, Bill Keller of The New York Times stirred up a hornet’s nest when he wrote a column worrying that joining Facebook would have a debilitating effect on his 13 year-old daughter’s intellectual faculties. Technology advocates, including me, pounced. Now there are new studies out that seem to support his argument. One shows that using search engines decreases our memory and another suggests that GPS may atrophy our brains. Discovery magazine has collected a half-dozen similar examples on its site. I think the question itself is misplaced. Clearly, we use technology to do things for us that we no longer are doing for ourselves and that means certain abilities degenerate. Yet, it also means that we are freeing up cognitive energy for other things. So what’s really important is not the skills we are losing but those that we need to develop. - See more at: http://www.innovationexcellence.com/blog/2014/04/04/how-technology-is-changing-the-skills-we-need-to-learn/#sthash.RlmbZffQ.dpuf A while back, Bill Keller of The New York Times stirred up a hornet’s nest when he wrote a column worrying that joining Facebook would have a debilitating effect on his 13 year-old daughter’s intellectual faculties.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 5, 2:22 PM

Complex problems require diversity amongst the people attempting to solve the problems. Classrooms contain tremendous diversity so students, of all ages, are already in those diverse environments. Rather than trying to homogenize the learning, what would happen if we diversified approaches?

Teresa De Santos's curator insight, April 8, 8:51 AM

A ver si nos vamos dando cuenta

Félix Santamaria's curator insight, April 11, 5:40 AM

El punto de vista catastrofista sobre la tecnología no lleva a ningún lado. El punto de vista optimista, pero no consecuente en las aulas tampoco. Sólo un uso educativo adecuado tiene sentido.
