The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom

The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom | Educational technology resources 101 | Scoop.it

Technology should not be used as simply a digital worksheet. There are many apps and Internet sites available that are simply a technological version of a paper task, forcing students to practice over and over a skill that they may already have mastered.  Don’t get me wrong. Skills do need to be practiced. I just happen to think that students should spend most of their time using technology for more creative purposes.

Most information that's available, we don't know how it’s assembled and whether it’s accurate. So if you don't know how to probe the sources and say on what basis they made the assertions, you can be fooled into thinking you’re educated when you’re really not.
