Thomas Edison once said, "Books will soon be obsolete in the public schools...our school system will be completely changed inside of ten years." Amazingly enough, however, one of our nation's most important inventors was proven quite wrong. The American education system has a remarkable resistance to innovation and the classroom experience has changed very little in the 100 years since Edison's prediction.

 

Advances in information technology have revolutionized how people communicate and learn in nearly every aspect of modern life except for education. The education system operates under the antiquated needs of an agrarian and industrial America. The short school day and the break in the summer were meant to allow children to work on family farms. Schools have an enduring industrial mentality placing students in arbitrary groups based on their age regardless of their competencies.

 

Technology has failed to transform our schools because the education governance system insulates them from the disruptions that technology creates in other organizations. The government regulates schools perhaps more than any other organization. Rules govern where students study, how they will learn, and who will teach them. Education regulation governs the relationships of actors in the system and stymies the impact of innovative technologies. Furthermore the diffuse system of governance creates numerous veto points to limit innovation.

 

To overcome these obstacles, we must persuade teachers that technology will empower them and help their students learn. We argue that there are five strategies for successful teacher adoption of education technology and that these principles will help fulfill the potential that Edison saw a century ago:

Tyler Wilshire Duncan's curator insight, September 12, 2013 1:27 PM

This article discusses the fact that in today’s society regarding education and the education system teachers need to start focussing on using technology to their advantage in the classroom because no matter what anyone says technology is advancing and at a rapid rate. This article conveys that technology has failed to transform our schools to quite a large extent. It is said that our society is in this state because rules govern where students are to study, how they will and will not study and who will teach them.

 

Furthermore, the article points out that to overcome such obstacles we, as a society need to come together in persuading the teachers that technology is useful for our education and will empower them and help their students learn and grow.

 

This article highlights five strategies that should help bring teachers in our nation on board with the new age of technology and education and by doing so will help fulfil what our nation and its education system is aiming for. These five strategies are: Schools must use technologies that empower teachers, teachers should treat the adoption of technology as part of lesson planning, teachers should not fear open-source technologies, they should use online education portfolios to evaluate students and teachers should embrace the Common Core State Standards. Having a set of standards eliminates redundancy and conflicting guidelines and makes teaching much easier and simpler. 

 

This article aims to create awareness that teachers themselves should aim to use technology in a, useful, wise and inexpensive way through education. 

 

I feel that this article is heading in the right direction in its content and its aim for education. I think that because technology it's advancing at such a fast rate, we do need to move with it, else we will fall behind and as a result education will slowly start falling behind too. I think it is a good idea for schools to slowly start using technology such as tablets and iPads instead of textbooks, because this brings students many advantages and takes away many burdens.
