The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning

The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

The technology they use in their personal lives just makes sense for use in their learning as well. If a student badly wanted a new tablet or app for his or her own personal use but wanted nothing to do with it for any kind of learning whatsoever, we may need to look at the disconnect.

But there are other reasons why education consistently turns to technology

Why online education is mostly a fantasy

Why online education is mostly a fantasy | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

In the end, MOOCs and online programs primarily help those who are self motivated to learn, and the vast majority of these people would have figured out how to educate themselves, whether in college or on their own, regardless of whether or not online courses are available.

There need not be a dichotomy of online learning and having the personalized attention of a teacher/coach. This article, and others like it, are misguided if their point is that online education will forever remain a fantasy; they are valuable articles in that they correctly note what's limiting and/or dysfunctional now to set us on course to the new "reality" of online and blended learning being superior to traditional "brick and mortar" education.

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience.

I completely agree with this post. I fully integrated it into one of my courses last year. Students had to choose a potential future career and create a scoop.it page to help them learn about that field. Most feedback was positive. A few students still use it seven months after the grades have been turned in!

OPINION: The Case for 'Learning Designers' | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

"For edtech startups to be be profoundly successful (ie. transform learning experiences on a grand scale) they really need to be innovative with their pedagogy as well as their technology. Otherwise, there is a danger that things they build will just end up replicating existing practices, only faster and shinier."

So true and so easily lost in the desire to be "innovative" schools.
Drora Arussy's curator insight, May 7, 2013 9:14 AM

So many schools are going for the wow factor of new technology. Good education should still be our main goal. There are so many possibilities for home and school engagement, for processing and internalizing as opposed to regurgitating information, for sharing and building upon others' ideas. It is incumbent upon those who are using technology to up the ante - a smartboard is not just a new blackboard and projector together, an ipad can take students to other places and allow them to integrate their interests into the lessons and homework. Technology has the possibility to take education to the next lesson with the proper educators - not in and of itself.

"This school year I've worked with a few school districts that are using Google Apps for Education for the first time.

When I sat down to plan an upcoming Google Drive training session I thought about some of the essential Google Drive skills that teachers need in addition to creating documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. Here are five essential Google Drive skills I think teachers need."
