Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 28, 2014 8:32 PM

There is no question that technology may have a positive impact on education. This post looks at two research studies that support the value of technology in areas such as blended learning, digital fluency, critical thinking, project-based learning and much more.

But there is a flip side to this. Consider these two concepts:

* Learning from computers

* Learning with the technology

Take a moment to think how you would define these two concepts. Are they saying the same thing, or are they proposing two different ways of learning? The post discussed these two concepts before listing 15 times you should not use technology. Below is a list of three of the items. Click through to the post to read more. Each is discussed and some include additional links.

* When it undermines deep learning

* When it decreases interaction

* When it reduces the chance of failure

You may find that you do not agree with all the items listed, but you will be challenged to think about how you use technology in your classroom, and perhaps find some new ideas that you will implement in the future.

Technology is not to blame, but the incorrect use of pedagogy to keep students engaged during class.

quel est votre avis ? est ce que l’éducation français doit se concentrer sur l'utilisation d'un clavier plutôt que l'ecriture ?

A débattre !

EdTech@FAIS's curator insight, February 4, 2015 6:38 PM

Is there a brain-memory connection to learning cursive that can't be learned with typing skills? What do you think?

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, February 5, 2015 5:42 AM

So sensible to teach typing, but I find children who can write cursive can read it.  It will be a pity to loose the ability to read old text, e.g. a letter from Granny!

9 Steps For Schools To Create Their Own BYOD Policy - TeachThought | Education tech | Scoop.it

" BYOD (and its initialistic cousin, BYOT), 1:1, and other trends are symbolic of (at least) three things: 1. Schools, teachers, and students want technology in the classroom 2. Technology is expensive 3. Schools are looking for solutions The following excellent graphic from byodsandpit.weebly.com offers a plan to begin guiding your school towards a BYOD policy or plan that works for you. In that way, it is better than copy/pasting another school or district’s policy, making sure whatever you come up with is, at worst, personalized for your application."
