OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus's curator insight, June 4, 2014 11:37 AM

"It doesn’t matter that I’ve obtained both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree. And it doesn’t matter that I got both from an Ivy League institution. It doesn’t matter that I’m a minister and an artist who has dedicated my existence not to violence or physical harm, but to loving my neighbors, spreading peace and speaking life. My resume doesn’t count, because it’s not written on my forehead. I am simply a problem.
You may think I’m paranoid. And you’re right."

How Computers Can Impede Spaces of Learning | DMLcentral | big.bad better | Scoop.it

It’s not enough to give these devices to students and teachers and expect classroom practice to shift. The preservice teachers I work with are using technology in ways that are familiar to me. Some of the obvious examples: they not-so-discretely text in class and they occasionally get wrapped up in Facebook or online chats with friends when the class is engaged in a class wide discussion. These examples are akin to what I’ve seen in my high school experience. And if these are the students who are going to be our future teachers soon, do we really expect radical shifts in how they treat and adapt technology in schools?

Since we are living in a world where technology plays an important role in daily life, and that includes the classroom, teacher education institutions must develop strategies on how teachers should adapt to changing technologies in a way that it should have positive impact in the classroom, and not the other way around.

A useful reminder of the possible pitfalls of tapping into the connectivity offered by modern-day technology.
