Pedagogy...Technology...Which Should Come First?

Pedagogy...Technology...Which Should Come First? | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it

"...using technology does not necessarily make a teacher effective. I am going to repeat that, because I want this to be very clear: technology is not pedagogy. I actually learned that lesson the hard way. I spent my first two months as a teacher building a paperless, hybrid-online, flipped classroom using Moodle, and marching students through standards by having them click through links and complete digital quizzes and activities."

What comes first? Pedagogy or Technology? This post explores this issue. It also includes a great visual "Let's stop talking about teaching with technology, and let's start talking about learning." The visual is in Google Docs and you can download it at:

The visual shown above is also used in a free online course you may want to check out. For more information on the course: http://www.edtechchallenge.com/

Melvina Kurashige is a Japanese teacher who shared an idea from a school in Belgium. The kids took the idea and made it their own. Next thing they were invited to present at the School of the Future Conference in front of hundreds of teachers. They realized the process is what helped them become better learners.

This infographic has many ThingLinked activities and resources. To get to them click through to the post. The infographic includes five pieces of support material, including over 60 SAMR examples and resources. There are also four questions that may help you determine if the technology is an enhancement or transformative. One is below.

* Does the technology/tool allow for collaboration (e.g. within a school, district, state, nation, globe, experts, PLN)?

This post is chock full of information as well as introducing the new acronym SASSY (see infographic above).

Plagiarism vs. Collaboration on Education’s Digital Frontier

Plagiarism vs. Collaboration on Education’s Digital Frontier | EFL Teaching Journal | Scoop.it
Instead of focusing our concerns on technology as an aid to plagiarizers, we should focus on its ability to foster creativity and collaboration, says Jen Carey.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 1, 3:10 PM

As teachers we know how easy it is for students to plagiarize today. We are asked to have students work collaboratively and use tools where students may see others thoughts. How to we deal with these issues, the need for collaboration and using tools which promote this and the issue of students plagiarizing? And when it comes to assessment how do we ask students to collaborate yet also demand that they not plagiarize?

This post explores these issues and discusses how to "transform cheating into collaboration"?  There is also a question that each of us might ask ourselves (and I suspect many of us have): If you can Google an answer is it a good question for an assessment?
