The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom

The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"I have been concerned, though, by some of the ways that I see technology being used. Technology should not just allow us to do things in a more engaging way; it should allow us to do new things that we thought were not possible. It is those new things that are the real value technology provides.  It is not enough to USE technology. You must use it well."

Susan Gingras Fitzell's curator insight, January 6, 2013 8:55 AM

I have been witness to technology being used poorly in the classroom. I'm a huge advocate for technology that enhances focused and targeted instruction. However, that often means that the classroom teacher has to set up the class so students are supported and monitored. Otherwise, young children will simply be clicking blindly to see what happens next and older youth will be sneaking to other places on the web. It always amazes me that I can be observing a class from the back of the room and watch students flip screens so fast when the teacher comes by. Yet, they don't seem to care that there's an adult right behind them observing what they are up to. Also, it's tempting to use technology in the classroom as a way to keep students quiet... It's a powerful tool. Use it well. 

John Purificati's curator insight, January 6, 2013 10:36 AM

A reminder to all that while technology can open all those wonderful doors to learning, the teacher must not become complacant with its use.

Jerry de Gier's curator insight, January 6, 2013 12:17 PM

This is a great article on the right uses of technology in the classroom.
