Modernising education is about competences, not just technology

Modernising education is about competences, not just technology | Educomunicación | Scoop.it

“Education is a kind of dynamic movement where improvements are based on the specific ability and competences of teachers. Turning our classical liceo into a modern liceo, using instruments to improve innovation and teaching, is our main goal. […] Our students go from absorbing lessons like a sponge into actors that play a real role in a cooperative technologically-supported class.”

Gust, you are welcome. Tech is the tool.

This article effected me in the way of how I learn best. I am an audible learner but i also like to have a hard book to flip the pages of and look back on, instead of having to switch screens . Part of me has an aversion to reading long articles/stories/content online because in a textbook, i can use post-it notes, fold over pages, and flip back and forth easily. It is great that they are trying to make everything uniform with teachers and students, but not everyone learns the same or enjoys staring at a screen for countless hours in order to finish their homework. The internet is also a huge distraction.

Oof, I feel old now! I can hardly remember what I did on a PC before the internet was available and yet I was always on them!

In the three decades since the Internet evolved from an experimental band of academic and government computer systems into a globe-spanning network of interconnected systems, the amount of time spent online has grown to rival (or even exceed) the time spent living offline. Personal computers, tablets and smartphones have made the connected life a reality, and the number of folks pursuing it has exploded.

Yes, I too can remember when there wasn't an Internet. Is there an application that's not yet been produced. What next will we all wonder how we did without ?
