Technology Alone Won’t Transform Education – We Need A Whole New Approach To Teaching And Learning

Technology Alone Won’t Transform Education – We Need A Whole New Approach To Teaching And Learning | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
Perhaps the main reason for this disappointing impact is that the inclusion of technologies in schools has done little to change the ‘tell and practise’ approach to teaching and learning – the predominant pedagogical practice of our time.

In this model, teachers tell students what knowledge is and what is worth knowing; meanwhile, students invest their limitless capacity for investigating, thinking critically, creating, hypothesising, and collaborating by memorising and practising what they’re told.

How to transform schools into Learning Organisations?

How to transform schools into Learning Organisations? | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
Schools nowadays are required to learn faster than ever before in order to deal effectively with the growing pressures of a rapidly changing environment. Many schools however, look much the same today as they did a generation ago, and too many teachers are not developing the pedagogies and practices required to meet the diverse needs of 21st-century learners.

In response, a growing body of scholars, educators and policy makers around the world is making the case that schools should be re-conceptualised as “learning organisations” that can react more quickly to changing external environments, embrace innovations in internal organisation, and ultimately improve student outcomes. Despite strong support for and the intuitive appeal of the school as a learning organisation, relatively little progress has been made in advancing the concept, either in research or practice. This lack of progress partly stems from a lack of clarity or common understanding of the school as learning organisation.

Such amazing tool to take advantage of technology :) Tools like this ones are excellent to enhance the development of  la guage skills while taking advantage of technology. As it not only enables students to use their devices to learn, it also promotes speaking skill. It is a shame that it is only available for iOS. 
It would be great if the application could be used in different platforms.

Jenny's curator insight, September 17, 11:56 AM
Google Docs is one of the great apps I have explored during my learning experience. I remember that when I was at school, most of my teachers suggested us to start using it since it is very easy to use and manage. However, I did not have a computer and I did not like the idea of doing homeworks by the computer. To me, homeworks were better at hand, but through the years, I started becoming aware about the advantages of using this app. 
In my school, there was an attempt to develop and enhance cooperative work since most of the parents were arguing that they did not want their children to do homeworks in others friends` houses, for them, it was better to start using the computer as a way to perform tasks with no moving from their home in their free time. 
I really love this app because it facilitates the development of tasks , optimizes time and enhances the cooperation among partners .
It is significant to recognize that this great app is now taking place in different settings due to the features it provides. It is a powerful tool in academic scenarios because it promotes autonomy, cooperative work and responsibility.
Some years ago, it just provided the feature of sharing documents and editing some aspects of the text, but now that technology has settled into many contexts,google docs provide more features to correct, align and adjust the document.
