Why Schools Must Move Beyond One-to-One Computing | November Learning

Why Schools Must Move Beyond One-to-One Computing | November Learning | Design in Education | Scoop.it
Unless we break out of this limited vision that one-to-one computing is about the device, we are doomed to waste our resources.

Bobbi Dunham's curator insight, March 29, 2015 10:29 PM

Think this article is worthy of a re-post. Although I think we've moved beyond the 1:1 issue, the big issue that still remains is 'time'. And time is money. Faculty are pushed to the limit. Asking them to redesign and learn new ways to incorporate tech into learning is no easy feat. But it's important to do. Time would be better spent given to faculty so they can critically explore and take advantage of tech tools for learning instead of endlessly squabbling about the impact of tech on learning. That bus has already left the station.

ISTE Recap - Day 3 - Where Are All Those “Lazy” Teachers?

ISTE Recap - Day 3 - Where Are All Those “Lazy” Teachers? | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Nationwide, the witch hunt against teachers unions and teacher tenure has built its argument on the gimcrack premise that educators are inherently lazy. Teachers will no doubt recline in their cushy career thrones once granted a decent living wage and professional flexibility. Well, bring those Chicken Littles to ISTE. Their airy thesis evaporates instantly upon entering the convention hall.

There are no lackadaisical teachers here. There are no uninspired trolls among the animated educators chatting in corridors between rapid-fire sessions. There are no sheeple among the collaborative professionals trading tech on Twitter. The best way to bust open a stereotype is open one’s eyes and see teachers in action at ISTE.

ISTE Recap - Day 4 - The Curse Of Knowledge

ISTE Recap - Day 4 - The Curse Of Knowledge | Design in Education | Scoop.it

The final day of the ISTE-palooza felt more relaxed, as the numbers dwindled with the work week and the attendees fell into a rhythm. The emphasis today seemed less about tools for teachers and more about skills for students. Several speakers pointed to the lack of genuine search ability by students who use Google not just as their default research tool but also as their reflexive second brain for information access.

ISTE Recap - Day 1 - Who Is Standing On The Shoulders Of Teacherpreneurs?

ISTE Recap - Day 1 - Who Is Standing On The Shoulders Of Teacherpreneurs? | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Most conferences by their nature host an eager pool of participants. Without some authentic interest, why else would individuals sacrifice their time and dollars for days of intensive workshops? The Twitterverse and the edtech sphere, however, seem to reserve a special place for ISTE, the annual see-and-be-seen summit staged by the International Society For Technology In Education. This year’s #ISTE2014 network is no exception, with a zealous crowd of conference goers expected to top 20,000. There is even a trending #notatiste14 thread to loop in curious parties unable to visit Atlanta. And with the lines for the first ISTE Ignite session as a prime indication, it’s going to be a convivial, congested weekend.
