The Right & Wrong Way To Use Technology For Learning

The Right & Wrong Way To Use Technology For Learning | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

"So much in learning is subjective, which makes sense because so much in life itself is also subjective, and we learn in order to live. So it’s natural.

Grey areas abound–the usefulness and quality of the Common Core Standards. The importance of curiosity in learning. The evaluation of technology in learning. The utility of letter grades. (And alternatives to letter grades.)"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 9, 2013 8:27 PM

What is the best way to use technology in your classroom? We know that students like to use technology but are they using it constructively? Are  you using technology constructively? This post explores these issues, not ing that there are some right and wrong answers in how technology should be used?

I believe that technology is a tool, a tool that can be used to reinforce, enhance and extend the curriculum; a tool that allows students to use critical thinking skills; to find answers to questions.

Check out the graphic that accompanies the discussion of this topic and consider how you will be using technology in your class.

"Uso saludable de las redes sociales": mi última charla en Prezi | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

El uso masivo de las redes sociales ha traído grandes beneficios pero también ciertos riesgos que no siempre son evaluados. Muchas veces, el escaso conocimiento del alcance de lo que publicamos y compartimos puede suponer consecuencias no deseadas que sorprenden y preocupan.

MOOCs and Economic Reality - The Conversation - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

In “We’re All to Blame for MOOCs,” Patrick J. Deneen proposes a transformation away from global universities and toward identity-driven colleges as a defense against the coming shakeup from novel forms of online education. While developing this theme, he quotes me on the rise of MOOCs, and imagines this makes me an opponent of his views.

Higher ed leaders urge slow down of MOOC train | Inside Higher Ed | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

As scores of colleges rush to offer free online classes, the mania over massive open online courses may be slowing down. Even top proponents of MOOCs are acknowledging critical questions remain unanswered, and are urging further study.

Dan Greenstein, the head of college access at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, now wonders aloud if MOOCs are a “viable thing or are just a passing fad.” Gates has agreed to spend $3 million for wide-reaching MOOC-related grants. But  Greenstein said higher ed is suffering from “innovation exhaustion,” and MOOCs are part of the problem.
