6 Objections to Technology in Higher Ed | Technology and Learning @insidehighered

6 Objections to Technology in Higher Ed | Technology and Learning @insidehighered | Gadgets and education | Scoop.it
Are you skeptical about the role of technology in higher education?  Our edtech establishment has done a poor job engaging in a meaningful dialogue with our critics. I find this lack of positive conversation disturbing, as I think that I share many of the same values as those most critical of the edtech profession that I love. Perhaps if we first enumerate the main objections to edtech, if we listen to our critics, we’d be in a better position to evolve and reform our own edtech discipline. What are the mains objections to technology, and technology organizations, in higher ed?

Mobile and interactive media use by young children: The good, the bad and the unknown

Mobile and interactive media use by young children: The good, the bad and the unknown | Gadgets and education | Scoop.it
Mobile devices are everywhere and children are using them more frequently at young ages. The impact these mobile devices are having on the development and behavior of children is still relatively unknown. Researchers review the many types of interactive media available today and raise important questions regarding their use as educational tools, as well as their potential detrimental role in stunting the development of important tools for self-regulation.

Wilfred Rubens's curator insight, January 31, 2:18 AM

Er is veel bekend over de negatieve gevolgen van veel TV kijken door jonge kinderen, maar we weten nog weinig over de gevolgen van interactieve mobiele technologieën op ontwikkeling van kinderen onder de 30 maanden. Wat zijn de gevolgen voor zelfregulatie, empathie, sociale vaardigheden en het kunnen oplossen van problemen? Deze bijdrage geeft geen antwoorden, maar stelt wel relevante vragen.

The EdTech Trends To Look Out For In 2015 | Gadgets and education | Scoop.it
Technology has already been responsible for numerous advances in education and that trend is only going to accelerate, with the next 12 months likely to see further changes in the learning landscape.


For many educators, technology is now a key tool in their practice, and in some cases even shapes the way they teach. So I thought it would be useful to round up some of the key trends in educational technology to look out for in 2015.

Making the Invisible Visible: Technology's Impact on Teaching and Learning - Educate 1 to 1 | Gadgets and education | Scoop.it

In a previous article, I suggested that “technology’s greatest success, which is making itself invisible, is in fact the main reason why at least some teachers question vociferously its impact and value in education”. This a concept that I would like to explore further.

The 6 Major Skills for 21st Century Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The 6 Major Skills for 21st Century Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Gadgets and education | Scoop.it

Here is a short two pages PDF document from ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) which features the six major fluencies (standards) students need to develop in the 21st century classroom. Each of these fluencies is broken down into various skills all of which work in unison to cultivate the target fluency. From all the resources I have shared here on the 21st century teaching and learning, this document is by far the most comprehensive and practical.

Smartphones Don’t Make Us Dumb

Smartphones Don’t Make Us Dumb | Gadgets and education | Scoop.it
AS much as we love our digital devices, many of us have an uneasy sense that they are destroying our attention spans. We skitter from app to app, seldom alighting for long. Our ability to concentrate is shot, right?

Research shows that our intuition is wrong. We can focus. But our sense that we can’t may not be a phantom. Paying attention requires not just ability but desire. Technology may snuff out our desire to focus.

A big part of infotention is simply recognizing the need to think about where your attention is going while you are online, and why, and how you can exert more control over it.

Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: A Sensible Way to Look At #EdTech Integration | Gadgets and education | Scoop.it

"In the early days of my work in helping schools integrate technology, I remember how frustrated I was when I'd walk into a school and witness how devices were used. In so many classrooms, students would take what was written on loose leaf paper and type their work into a computer. Next, they'd print it out. The teacher would mark it up, and they'd type in the new version.

Ack!"
