The Sad Reality Of Education Technology | Edudemic

The Sad Reality Of Education Technology | Edudemic | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

The sad reality is that most schools still believe that they are “teaching with technology” because they have a computer lab where they teach students important skills like word processing and how to create Power Point presentations. This may have been a worthwhile skill to teach 15 years ago, but the fact that we haven’t adapted as technology has is a clear example of how slow schools are to respond to the changing needs of our students.

Task-based learning quote from John Norris via the Leaky Grammar blog:

 

"Though challenging, this vision of task-based language learning offers one comprehensive alternative to the status quo. That alternative may help us realize a language education practice that is valuable to a variety of discourse communities, the language learners who need and want to interact with them, and the language teaching profession whose job it is to facilitate their doing so."
