Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching

Don't Confuse Technology With Teaching | ENGLISH LEARNING 2.0 | Scoop.it
Though universities are rushing to embrace online courses, true education requires one mind engaging with another.

 

Educators are coaches, personal trainers in intellectual fitness. The value we add to the media extravaganza is like the value the trainer adds to the gym or the coach adds to the equipment. We provide individualized instruction in how to evaluate and make use of information and ideas, teaching people how to think for themselves.

 

Just as coaching requires individual attention, education, at its core, requires one mind engaging with another, in real time: listening, understanding, correcting, modeling, suggesting, prodding, denying, affirming, and critiquing thoughts and their expression.

The material and spiritual go hand-in-hand, but the material has proven origins(the "big bang") and as such may have an inescapable end(annihilation), but will the spiritual survive its boon companion, the material?

Google is Not God: We Need a New Philosophy for Education and Technology

Google is not God, but the omnipresent search engine commands an unworldly level of trust from its followers. 

 

If they’re naive at Googling, it’s because the ability to judge information is almost never taught in school. Under 2001′s No Child Left Behind Act, elementary and high schools focus on prepping their pupils for reading and math exams.

 

===> And by the time kids get to college, professors assume they already have this skill. <===

Best Places To Educate Yourself Online For Free

Best Places To Educate Yourself Online For Free | ENGLISH LEARNING 2.0 | Scoop.it
The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.

 

All education is self-education. Period. It doesn’t matter if you’re sitting in a college classroom or a coffee shop. We don’t learn anything we don’t want to learn.

 

Those people who take the time and initiative to pursue knowledge on their own are the only ones who earn a real education in this world.

 

Take a look at any widely acclaimed scholar, entrepreneur or historical figure you can think of. Formal education or not, you’ll find that he or she is a product of continuous self-education.

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News | ENGLISH LEARNING 2.0 | Scoop.it

Students today have unprecedented access to information. According to educator Karl Fisch, in one week of reading The New York Times, an individual will encounter more information than people in the 18th century would have had access to during the entire course of their lives.

 

It is not surprising that in this atmosphere, students appear to be growing increasingly dogmatic and are less able to engage in civil discourse with others with whom they disagree. Perhaps this is because they cannot accurately explain what people who oppose them actually believe. In truth, they often lack consistency in their own beliefs as well.
