Of MOOCs and Technology: Why True Education Is Not Content Delivery

Of MOOCs and Technology: Why True Education Is Not Content Delivery | Education in the 21st century | Scoop.it
Today's students don't need more technology; they don't need more PowerPoint and computer-based learning platforms. What they need are enthusiastic and talented and creative teachers and professors who see education not as a job but as a calling.

Corinne Tomaszewski's curator insight, November 5, 2013 11:26 AM

This article brings up a lot of great points. What struck me first was the mention that students are delivered content and taught to memorize what they "learned" in order to perform well on a test that is supposed to be measuring their mastery of the content. When in actuality there is no learning, no understanding, and no retention of the content. This is very true! The second argument I really agreed with is that students and classrooms do not necessarily need more technology. But they need more meanigful experiences and engaging moments with that technology and pedegogy.  I am currently producing a research study to support the idea that high-quality technology integration in the classroom encourages students to be more successful with learning and transfer of knowledge. Through our investigation of other research we have found that many teachers are using technology as a replacement to traditional instruction, when they should using it as just a tool or suppor to enhance their pedeogy.
