How Educational Technologies Improve Learning

How Educational Technologies Improve Learning | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Learn how technology can be used in schools to improve instruction, simplify a teacher’s work, or smooth operational challenges.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Digital technologies do improve learning. That should not be at question. The question should be when does it improve learning? Is this the right context and situation for this technology?

Moocs data offers promise of perfect teaching | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
When students learn online, every mouse click is tracked. Harness this wealth of data and we can create the ultimate in personalised lessons.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I think there will be a balance struck at some point where we figure out the human touch is essential to good learning and begin to work on what role different tools can play in enhancing leanring when used well.

Sharrock's curator insight, November 8, 2013 11:12 AM

from the article: "f this trend continues, then, students could soon be receiving the ultimate in personalised teaching, with unique lessons targeted exactly to their needs, motivations and learning style."


I wonder: could MOOCs offered for free, make money and barter knowledge, using the data they gather from participating students? Could universities that are offering MOOCs feed data and research into their education and cognitve science departments? Other digital-instruction platforms might provide similar value--free interactive learning sites, free games, simulation-sites might gather data, analyze it, share it, and apply it in ways to improve instruction and entertainment (engagement and attention).

At The Padagogy Wheel Core: Immersive Learning Targets Engagement

At The Padagogy Wheel Core: Immersive Learning Targets Engagement | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it

The new version of the Padagogy Wheel tackles a major question that is lurking in the back of everyone’s mind. If it’s not … it should be. It’s about the problem of motivation in education. How do we motivate students, teachers, parents, and everyone else to get excited about learning? How do you stay motivated? What works and what doesn’t?”

How Technology Changes Student-Teacher Interaction - Edudemic

How Technology Changes Student-Teacher Interaction - Edudemic | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Learning technologies change student-teacher interactions in several ways, but there's one specifically that really stands out and makes the most difference in our classrooms.

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Information is ubiquitous. Knowledge is not nor is it free. We each have to figure out how to turn information into knowledge and then figure out what to do with it. This takes work. I think student-teacher interaction needs to change. It has not in many cases.

 

The John Dewey quote is important.

It changes if the teacher sees himself as a learner. 

 

Nancy Jones's curator insight, September 15, 2013 11:46 AM

whenAccepting when teachers acknowledge themselves as co- learner s who guide students. The learning together really occurs.  Great quotable content in this brief but succinct commentary.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, September 22, 2013 10:50 PM

In reviewing my Scoop It recommendations I came across a curation established by Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa) .  His Scoop It site is  iGeneration - 21st Century Education.  As many of you know, I am honored to be working with pre-service students at Sterling College (KS) as an Adjunct Professor.  My course is entitled "Technology in the Classroom".  As one of my major points on using technology is that the students must be considering "How" the technology will be used to provides avenues not available in other manners as well as corporating HOTS and critical thinking skills.  Through that approach articles like this one are great reads and discussion points for all parties to discuss effective use of technology.
