The term caste system is excellent. It is the reason why we see so little structural change in education at all levels. It is about protecting turf rather than the learning.

Such words of wisdom. Now that I am in my 34th year of teaching and ready to retire I can say that the message of this article is quite true. Make connections, show your students your care, be human, and they will work as hard for you as they possibly can.

A Brief History of EdTech (Infographic)

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 30, 2014 10:12 PM

This infographic looks at both technology and education over the last four decades. Are there connections between these two themes? Take a look and see what was going on in the 1980's, 1990's, 2000's and today. This infographic provides geat depth in these two areas, noting that the:

* 1980's was the Age of Processing, the beginning of the Digital Age and a time when tech was a peripheral tool.

* 1990's was Hardware 2.0, the World Wide Web came into being and a time when tech begins to supplement.

* 2000's was the move to connectivity, to an age of sharing and portable devices and technology supplements instruction.

* Today - Perhaps this is yet to be written but a few years in we see multifunctional devices, personalization and technology as an integrated tool.

What would your students think of this chart? What conversation might arise in faculty meeting or with sharing this with the PTO or other stakeholders in your community? It does provide food for thought.

This is great for media advocates because it directs them to types of media and technology that supplement successful education. It allows advocates to work with media, not against it.
