Emily Leffler's insight:

Using technology is really not a new concept, and although staying current with the latest and greatest is good, simple technology can be just as effective in supplementing the lesson and adding a depth that can't be reached any other way.

The Pros and Cons of Technology in the Classroom | Edudemic

The Pros and Cons of Technology in the Classroom | Edudemic | The Challenges of Integrating Technology Effectively | Scoop.it
Technology gives children the ability to learn in ways their parents and grandparents never had. Today’s learners have immediate access to answers and research. Yet, that immediate access is changing the way students think about work and how they feel emotionally. We’ve put together a list of some the pros and cons that surround the technology in the classroom debate.

Via Nik Peachey
Emily Leffler's insight:

Despite the fact that the world has become technology dependent, there is still a lot of resistance in the educational world to adapt and conform. While the responsibility of teaching students to use technology safely and effectively seems overwhelming, if teachers are willing to take the time, instruction can be incredibly enriched and students will quickly realize that they have limitless potential at their fingertips.

Danielarv's curator insight, September 26, 2016 5:56 PM
In this article Neil Jarrett talk about the impact that technology has on personalized learning and proposes different online tools in order to make it possible. The first online tool is Socrative, which is tech tool that allows teacher to set a quiz/test and then easily send it to the students. The second is an excellent class management tool called Google Classroom where teachers can post notices, assignments and comments, and students can comment and ask questions. Furthermore, Google docs that allow students work individually or collaboratively and also the teacher can track who is contributing. Subsequently, TodaysMeet creates a ‘classroom chatroom in which students can discuss problems, support each other and share new ideas. Finally, the Video Recorder is a useful tool that teachers can use in order to personalize learning. In conclusion, technology can support the teachers in order to do personalized learning.

Emily Leffler's insight:

Technology is changing every other aspect of our day to day life. It would be foolish to assume that we can keep teaching the way it's always been done and not become obsolete. Students have the latest and greatest technology in their hands already, we need to utilize it rather than try to get rid of it.

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa) , Bookmarking Librarian
Emily Leffler's insight:

The most common misconception about adopting technology is that a teacher must completely restructure the classroom. This is not the case. Teachers must realize that they need to integrate what works for them. Technology should augment the teacher, not completely consume a lesson.

Katherine Hernández Giraldo's curator insight, October 18, 2016 9:55 PM
Many teachers are afraid to use technology in the classroom due to certain factors which are: time, classroom management, safety fears, support and help, adequate training, and learning the ropes. All of these can be improve if we use it for a specific purpose. We need to consider that the principal function if the technology is to complement the learning process.
