11 Reasons why teachers don't use technology

11 Reasons why teachers don't use technology | Education Around the World | Scoop.it

A recent survey reported in the UK newspaper the The Telegraph stated that as many as half of the teachers consulted for the survey said they rarely use technology in the classroom. This came as no surprise to me, but what did surprise me when I shared the article with my professional networks, was the number of trainers and teachers who actually blamed lazy and unmotivated teachers for this.

Reflections on my experiences of being a learning technology trainer.

Abdulsalam Al-Mukradi's curator insight, February 29, 11:10 AM

The use of technology is a big issue among teachers and educators. Whener we talk or discuss the use of technology, most teachers start mombling and react to the idea in a passive way. Some may be most teachers tend to say that technology is a waste of time, effort, and result to a boring classroom atmosphere. They also complain about the absence of some the necessary equipment for teacher and students to use in the classroom. The other reason they mention is the time that they need to spend preparing for the use of technology. In my opinion technology is the key of delivering information to studnets faster and enriching their knowledge and making the students the teachers feel great, supportive and enthusiastic to keep on studying and learning new ideas.I would highly recomment to every teacher to start and keep using technology to make thier teaching style unique.

Jay Cross's curator insight, July 4, 2013 12:55 AM

Brilliant. Desired traits in the modern knowledge worker:

Gifts and skills:

A synthetic mind that can ingest a lot of information and summarise it in clear and concise ways, perhaps using mnemonics.A pair of intently listening ears and eagerly observing eyes to pick up the signals around (and question them);Outstanding interpersonal communication skills helping to get in touch with a variety of people (in the same field of expertise and beyond);An open heart giving the emotional capacity to connect with others at a deeper level and build trust authentically;Good speaking and writing skills allowing to express oneself articulately so as to share knowledge more effectively – both with other people verbally and in writing;The capacity to read quickly and to remember things well;Typing blindly to write more quickly;Ideally, good facilitation skills to be able to tease out knowledge and information from other people and apply/combine them – but that is just an extra.

Attitude:

An open, curious, humble mind that keeps inquiring about everything, and does not settle for finished, definitive answers – the way a child would do rather than a self-engrossed expert – to keep on learning;A true curiosity to try new things out and add them to an array of experiences;A vision of one’s own development pathway and next priorities;Reflecting continually: every day, week or after every significant event, taking the time to ponder what just happened and what could have been done better, perhaps following the after action review principles;Reflecting in single, double and triple-loop learning, in practice;An attitude of ‘documenting on the spot’ (typing as people speak, live blogging, taking pictures and videos as things happen etc.);A strong self-discipline to systematically act upon all the above and reflect to improve again.

 

David Bramley's curator insight, July 4, 2013 7:16 PM

A really interesting post that considers the concept of 'knowledge worker'.  In my experience, people usually relate 'knowledge' to content and the advent of search engines such as Google has devalued individual grasp of content.  However, the post focuses on gifts, skills and behaviours and how they can be used to be creative and innovative.  Well worth a read

A useful summary table although I'd emphasise that the different 'versions' of education all have their place - v2.0 does not supercede v1.0

Thank you. I'm not quite ready myself to do away with teaching professionals or brick and mortal education. I value learning in a group context. I found the second summary table more useful (pedagogy, andragogy, heutagogy)

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation | Education Around the World | Scoop.it

For students who struggle with output, the option now exists to record ideas directly "onto a page." Similarly, teachers can leave audio feedback for students who benefit from hearing input multiple times. With the built-in camera, students can quickly snap pictures of class notes on a board, or record a quick video of teacher instruction. Leveraging just these few features has the potential to personalize learning and differentiate instruction where it might otherwise be impossible.

We have a long way to go to understand best practices for iPads, to move it from a play thing to integrated into creative pedagogy. However, "The Longest Journey begins with the First Step" and that is getting into the hands or teachers and learners.

The most important thing to do is to start with the wife of using the iPad if you have a sound pedagogical reason for using the iPad then you'll be a will to come up with uses that are appropriate.

Good question Thomas! I think it is an ongoing dance between learning good storytelling and then learning the tools for maximum impact.

recentlyrue recently I had to get students to use Powerpoint as the Internet connection was too slow to have them all work at once on other online presentation tools. After laying down some ground rules about effective use they amazed us with their creative responses. It is not the tool. It is how you use it. And how teachers plan for it!
