Max Arias's curator insight, November 20, 2013 1:26 PM

very interesting article to read.

Linda Alexander's curator insight, November 25, 2013 7:53 PM

Quite of few of the examples are famliar, but the point being that depending on the culture, the values, the worldview, etc. what it means to be educated, and how one goes about learning, can be vastly different.

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

Pedagogy...Technology...Which Should Come First? | Heidi's Educational Technology | 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/

Wow, what a great tool! Sometimes the biggest challenge in writing objectives is simply being able to articulate what you want from students. This will be a great resource for that step!
