MIT technology trailblazer is a critic of computerized learning

MIT technology trailblazer is a critic of computerized learning | ipads in education | Scoop.it

My concern, it’s only easy to give feedback on certain types of knowledge and certain types of activity. I think there’s a real risk, that we as a society, are going to end up giving too much privilege to the types of knowledge and the types of activity that are most easily evaluated and assessed computationally.

How To Create A Paperless Classroom With Your iPad

How To Create A Paperless Classroom With Your iPad | ipads in education | Scoop.it

"The idea of a paperless classroom is not new.

 

In fact, there was recently one very good blog, TeachPaperless, dedicated to this very idea. In short, the idea promotes not just a reduction of paper and other physical resources, but rather a more efficient workflow, quicker communication, improved access to learning materials, seamless digital portfolios, and more naturally connected student-teacher-student networks."

I do agree thats because i always said... think more, use less.

It's interesting how the younger generation is all tech, yet many of my middle schoolers still want a paper copy and work with paper.

ReallyOrganizedNow(RON)'s comment, August 14, 2013 2:44 AM
It is still a wonder to me why in this day of technological advancement, that there isn't a laptop or tablet on every desk in every school across the nation. Technology, need to be integrated more with the teaching and learning of our students.

"Professor Mitra is a Physicist and teaches Educational Technology at Newcastle University. Some years ago he had a revolutionary idea: “The Hole in the wall”. He installed computers in the streets of the slums of India and observed that children organize by themselves and learn naturally. So have we all a teacher’s soul inside us?''
