The problem with technology and education is that we get used to find information on the Internet. As a consequence we don't devlop our memory, we don't learn to think on our own since we know we can any information we want on the Internet

Quotations

Quotations | Educalogy | Scoop.it

“Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is most important.” - Bill Gates

“New technology is common, new thinking is rare.” - Sir Peter Blake

 

“Teaching in the Internet age means we must teach tomorrow’s skills today.” – Jennifer Fleming

Some say Google is God. Others say Google is Satan. But if they think Google is too powerful, remember that with search engines unlike other companies, all it takes is a single click to go to another search engine.

La technologie détourne les enfants de la lecture

La technologie détourne les enfants de la lecture | Educalogy | Scoop.it

Les technologies modifient le comportement des jeunes vis-à-vis de la lecture. C'est à 6 ou 7 ans qu'un enfant lit le plus, un intérêt qui décroît jusqu'à l'adolescence au profit des ordinateurs, des cellulaires et des consoles de jeu.


Cette situation inquiète les parents, révèle le rapport 2010 Kids&Family Reading Report, publié tous les deux ans par les Éditions Scholastic, qui se spécialisent dans les livres jeunesse. Le rapport se fonde sur un sondage mené en 2010 aux États-Unis auprès de 1045 écoliers âgés de 6 à 17 ans ainsi que leurs parents, soit 2095 répondants au total.

Plus de la moitié (56%) des parents sondés considèrent que la multiplication des appareils électroniques nuit à l'intérêt de leurs enfants pour la lecture.

Plus l'enfant est jeune, plus il a tendance à lire pour le plaisir. Les intérêts changent ensuite. Vers 12 ou 14 ans, les écoliers préfèrent nettement les jeux vidéo et les jeux d'ordinateur. À l'âge de 15 à 17 ans, ils passent beaucoup de temps à parler au cellulaire ou à envoyer des messages texte. C'est aussi à ce moment que leur intérêt pour la lecture est au plus bas. Selon le rapport, 56% des enfants de 6 à 8 ans lisent fréquemment, comparativement à seulement 24% des adolescents de 15 à 17 ans.

L'omniprésence des appareils électroniques n'a toutefois pas que des effets négatifs: le quart des élèves interrogés ont déjà lu un livre sur un support électronique, tel un ordinateur. La majorité des jeunes de 9 à 17 ans démontrent également beaucoup d'intérêt pour ce genre de lecture, principalement sur les tablettes numériques. Une minorité d'entre eux y ont toutefois accès.
