Technology in the Classroom: What Happens When It Fails?

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa) , The Rice Process
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

Sometimes the learning does not happen. Certainly, teachers need to explore their role, but sometimes students make decisions that make it difficult for learning to happen. In the end, learning is a student responsibility and teaching is about inviting students into an environment where this can happen and the learning is somehow meaningful for teachers and students.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

Digital technologies should fit the learning and its context. It is not the other way around that learning fits the digital technologies.

Although some of these provide different ways to integrate technology, I often wonder if, instead of making tech "fit", the goal should be what learning/growth/idea/concept do we want to explore and then proceed from there instead of seeing what tool we have and directing the learning with the tool.

all you have to do is...give it some thought.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD'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?

Support "tech - shy" teachers to see the benefits of technology in their classroom

Support "tech - shy" teachers to see the benefits of technology in their classroom | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Strategies to get your technology-shy teachers to take a chance on new tools.

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

One thing that would be helpful is not to force digital technologies on good teachers. They need support and it can be provided by providing them with opportunities to plan their professional development. They other thing that is important is do not assume that resistance is being tech shy. I resisted, but am hardly tech shy. What I resisted was the external experts who thought they knew more about my teaching and students than I did.

Wow! If this is as good as it looks I think this would make organising learning for younger children easier. I'll have to check it out in more detail though
