We need to ditch generational labels – Rebecca Onion – Aeon | educacion-y-ntic | Scoop.it
Generational thinking is seductive and confirms preconceived prejudices, but it’s a bogus way to understand the world
Alejandro Tortolini's insight:

La división en generaciones es artificial y no sirve para explicar la realidad.

Is It Time to Give Up on Computers in Schools? - Hybrid Pedagogy | educacion-y-ntic | Scoop.it
I think that we were blinded in the early days of personal computing about the power and possibility of computers. I think we were similarly blinded in the early days of the World Wide Web.

Sobre netbooks y políticos miopes

Sobre netbooks y políticos miopes | educacion-y-ntic | Scoop.it
Sólo hablamos de política en contadas ocasiones, y ésta es una de ellas. La Generalitat Valenciana ha anunciado que no equipará a sus centros educativos con netbooks para los estudiantes, tal y como prevé el Plan Escuela 2.0 del gobierno central. Y uno de los motivos, según el conseller de Educación Alejandro Font de Mora, es que los netbooks provocan miopía.Para refrendar su tesis, recurre a un estudio de la Fundación Oftalmológica del Mediterráneo, que alerta sobre los problemas de vista que p

[Infographic] How classroom tech evolves

[Infographic] How classroom tech evolves | educacion-y-ntic | Scoop.it
The How Classroom Tech Evolves Infographic shows what the modern day classroom looks like and presents what the classroom of tomorrow will bring. It explores the tech gadgets that are already being implemented in different schools around the country, and how they’re beneficial to both students and teachers.
Times have changed

Technology has rapidly changed the way we do things in a relatively short period of time. We have gone from painstakingly slow dial-up and waiting minutes for a single image to load, to always on broadband access and streaming high definition video to our cell phones.

There are children growing up who don’t know a world without Google, who don’t know the feeling of simply having to make do with not knowing something, “just Google it,” they all say. These are the same kids who don’t know what the save button in Microsoft Word is for, or why people say “rewind” when they want to go back to something in a video. They grew up with iPads and touchscreens, wifi and blazing internet speeds. Without a doubt, technology has impacted nearly every aspect of our lives including education.
Technology’s Role in the Classroom

Technology’s role in the classroom has drastically increased in recent years – with technology funding jumping from around $800 million in the early 2000s to nearly $12 billion in 2015. With wireless connectivity, tablets, and video conferencing, classrooms are beginning to look less like rooms in a school building and more like the bridge of the Enterprise every day. And as we progress, teachers are realizing that technology is not just a source of distraction for their students, but is actually a tool that can help students with a variety of learning styles to absorb information more effectively.
Adapting to Rapid Change

Being a good educator means constantly adapting to changing conditions, and using the most effective educational tools. This means embracing technology in the classroom. A majority of students today believe that having tech in the classroom has helped them to learn, and educators agree. Giving teachers the tools, training and trust they need to provide their students with meaningful online experiences can help them make the leap from being users of digital technology, to capable citizens of an always-on digital world.

It’s important to realize that this generation will change how educators formulate lessons and interact with students. They were brought up in the global community thanks to the Internet. With more and more technology being used in the classroom, teachers are slowly easing into the idea of using web-based programs to engage their students.

12 pathways to Blended Learning engagement | educacion-y-ntic | Scoop.it
Teachers and parents are always looking for the right scenarios to promote blended learning engagement. We see the potential in creating forums and using apps, websites and other virtual tools to promote creativity and higher-level learning.

Implementing blended learning takes practice in order to engage students, and allow them to be creative. It requires specific supportive guidelines for the use of technology.

The teacher always has a crucial role to play in blended learning situations. Teachers have the power to control the type and level of blended learning engagement. Here are some great ways to do just that.
