How Important is use of Technology in Education

How Important is use of Technology in Education | eLearning in Schools and Universities | Scoop.it
There were a huge number of positives and negatives to education technology. But, gradually as technology was embraced by the educational institutes, they realized the importance of technology in education. Its positives outnumbered the negatives and now, with technology, education has taken a whole new meaning that it leaves us with no doubt that our educational system has been transformed owing to the ever-advancing technology. Technology and education are a great combination if used together with a right reason and vision.

Important?  It is vital, but so is an understanding of how to handle it.
Julian Diaz's curator insight, May 26, 4:17 PM
"Technology and education are a great combination if used together with a right reason and vision." 

I start citing this sentence and asking teh question "do you really think technology is that important for education?"

As the world and society itself advance, technology takes its role as well. It's undeniable, technology is all over the world and it is always around us, it takes part of our lives in every moment and every minute, and it is taking part in education too (although not very fast) 

in my personal opinion, we should take into account technology in education, not just because it is growing in our lives, but because it might help teachers and students to improve the way we learn and teach. Take into account, for example, education 40 years ago, i would say it was more stupid and archaic, getting students to spit out data and information unuseful for their lives, but nowadays we become a new human kind and as technology is evolving, our way of thinking should evolve as well.

in this article there are numbered a list of posibilities and advantages of using technology inside the classroom as well as ways of using ir for educational purposes. Enjoy the reading.

Why Digital Learning is Reshaping Education

Why Digital Learning is Reshaping Education | eLearning in Schools and Universities | Scoop.it
Technology has changed just about every field, including education. Digital learning is reshaping education in unprecedented ways. The ways in which students learn are changing rapidly thanks to technology, and both students and teachers will benefit from it.

There are several specific changes that we can expect to see as digital learning takes over education. For one, the way teachers present information and how students work with that information has changed. Students are asked to be more hands-on and collaborative than ever before. There are also new skills that students must learn, such as digital literacy.

10 Reasons Why Stories And Online Learning Make An Awesome Pair - eLearning Industry | eLearning in Schools and Universities | Scoop.it
Storytelling is more of a strategy, than a methodology. As a strategy, it has to be worked out, keeping the learner and the course objective in mind. It is a strong tool in the hands of a smart designer! Learning and Development managers can achieve learning objectives by encouraging the learners to discover learning through stories.

Four cautionary lessons about education technology

Four cautionary lessons about education technology | eLearning in Schools and Universities | Scoop.it
Technology in education is often seen as a solution. It holds promise, but caution is warranted. Photo: Charlotte Kesl / World Bank There is no denying that governments around the world are expanding investments in education technology, from inputs that students use directly (like Kenya’s project to put tablets in schools) to digital resources to improve the education system (like Rio de Janeiro’s school management system). As public and private school systems continue to integrate technology into their classrooms, remember that education technology comes with risks.
Jarrod Johnson's insight:
I teach ICT Integration to final year student teachers as well as support teachers across a R-12 school. There is no point in just dumping technology in a classroom. Technology should enhance what we do.

In this workshop we explore a range of digital tools and teaching techniques that teachers can use to utilize the presence of digital devices in the classroom and make them productive. The workshop will show how we can use these devices to enable digital collaboration and develop a range of traditional and digital literacies in ways that are not possible in the analogue classroom.

Read through this and we are ticking all of these boxes at Pulteney. Some in more depth than others, our VR classes only exist in the STEM labs at the moment, but we are working to set up experiences across the school, and instead of designing camps with a learning focus, such as a robotics camp, our camps have had the learning experiences identified and expanded upon.

Introduction: Rewriting the rules for the digital age

Introduction: Rewriting the rules for the digital age | eLearning in Schools and Universities | Scoop.it
The 2017 Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends report reflects seismic changes in the world of business. This new era, often called the Fourth Industrial Revolution1—or, as we have earlier labeled it, the Big Shift2—has fundamentally transformed business, the broader economy, and society.

We title this year’s report Rewriting the rules for the digital age because a principal characteristic of the new era is not merely change, but change at an accelerating rate, which creates new rules for business and for HR. Organizations face a radically shifting context for the workforce, the workplace, and the world of work. These shifts have changed the rules for nearly every organizational people practice, from learning to management to the definition of work itself.

All business leaders have experienced these shifts, for good or for ill, in both their business and personal lives. Rapid change is not limited to technology, but encompasses society and demographics as well. Business and HR leaders can no longer continue to operate according to old paradigms. They most now embrace new ways of thinking about their companies, their talent, and their role in global social issues.

We have developed a “new set of rules” to make sense of this changing landscape. These rules reflect the shifts in mind-set and behavior that we believe are required to lead, organize, motivate, manage, and engage the 21st-century workforce. While it is hard to predict which emerging business practices will endure, it is impossible to ignore the need for change. This report is a call to action for HR and business leaders, who must understand the impact of change and develop new rules for people, work, and organizations.

Boston Area College Students Develop VR Game Based on ‘Ulysses’ -- Campus Technology

Boston Area College Students Develop VR Game Based on ‘Ulysses’ -- Campus Technology | eLearning in Schools and Universities | Scoop.it
An English class at Boston College is bringing together students from different disciplines and areas of study to build a virtual reality (VR) game experience. Dubbed “Joycestick,” the game brings author James Joyce’s classic Ulysses to life.

“Technology has moved on and people tell the stories about themselves in very different ways,” said Joseph Nugent, an assistant professor of English literature at Boston College leading the class. “Immersive technology seems to me to be a transformative change in the way that we’re going to understand and realize and represent and be in the world. And to think that we can do this along with a novel like Ulysses, to merge these things, is very exciting.”

G Suite for Education Now Open for Personal Google Accounts, Outside Domains -- Campus Technology | eLearning in Schools and Universities | Scoop.it
Users without Google’s  G Suite for Education accounts can now access Google Classroom from a personal Google account. Classroom also offers more administrator controls that allow G Suite users with domains outside of their own to join.

The company said in a blog post announcement that teachers and students will now be able to use their personal accounts to teach or attend classes and manage assignments. Sometime over the coming weeks, Google will give personal accounts the ability to create their own classes as well. For now, administrators will notice that Classroom has updated settings with new controls that allow them to easily monitor who can join their classes. To add a user from an outside domain, for example, both the administrator and other user need to whitelist the other’s domain in their settings. This feature enables outside guests, like visiting teachers or students, to quickly integrate into their host’s Classroom.
