Is Technology Holding Students Back? | Edudemic

Is Technology Holding Students Back? | Edudemic | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Today, a day without tech being used in the classroom would be an unusual day indeed. In fact, according to a survey by Front Row Education, 75% of teachers say they use technology daily with their students. Tablets and laptops are now common in many classrooms. These devices can be loaded with education programs and apps for students, and using this kind of technology makes it easy for teachers to track student progress.

On the cutting edge of ed-tech you’ll find tools like virtual reality and 3D printing. By using virtual reality technology, like Google Glass, students can visit other locations without ever leaving their desks. These tools use 3D imagery to make the wearer feel like they’re exploring a realm in person. 3D printing also gives students opportunities to explore cutting-edge concepts in the classroom. Students can design objects on a computer and then “print” them out on a 3D printer, which uses plastic or other materials to create the object. These kinds of technologies may currently be cost prohibitive for many schools, but you’re likely to see them being adopted by classrooms in the coming years.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:
People who have ready access to technology are still not aware that there are many just getting online without the sophistication of integration of technology or special devices.

The challenge is offering opportunities for meaningful engagement of skilled learners.  Not everyone comfortably jumps through other people's hoops.  Higher Education is charged with ways of enabling skilled learners to set up their own hoops.

Très juste par rapport à la réalité du terrain : il y a les étudiants et les apprenants (et un continuum entre les deux).

Oh boy, oh boy!  When I was a student, we worked like blazes becoz we had to or we'd've failed, but we had FUN too - lots and lots of it!  Now these poor devils are being analysed to death - and not even good jobs at the end of it -  Guys, u woz robbed...  the world has just been computerised to death!   Kids, take my advice, Have Fun  - don't look back on your student days and sigh for lost opportunities.

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic)

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic) | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"Parents are famous for their ability to reminisce about days gone by. It always starts the same way, “Back when I was your age, we used to walk 10 miles to school barefoot—in the snow.” Or, “I remember when school lunch cost a nickel.”

Thanks to the integration of technology, schools, and classrooms in particular, have changed so dramatically in recent years that some parents might not even recognize them. It’s a classic case of old school versus new school."

This infographic looks at how the integration of technology into schools has made major changes. Learn how many parents used software in school compared to their teenage students; how collaboration has changed; if technology is important to student success (parents view) and much more. If you have an upcoming Open House this might be an infographic that would elicit comments from parents.
