Let’s Stop Talking about Teaching with Technology, and Start Talking about Teaching

Let’s Stop Talking about Teaching with Technology, and Start Talking about Teaching | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it
Nancy Jones's insight:

Amen to this! It is NOT about the tools, but how they facilitate learning.

"Good teachers know how to create learner-driven environments where failure is considered learning and persistence is an expectation. Good teachers know how to inspire students and build a love for learning that can last a lifetime.

 And good teachers don’t necessarily need to use technology to do that."

Nancy Jones's insight:

Valuable discussion tool about the distinctions

Rebecca Ferlazzo's curator insight, May 12, 2013 9:27 PM

An important point to remember when we are considering using technology in the classroom. The integration of technology can be a help in the classroom while simply using technology can become a hinderance. So where do we make that distinction? 

James Buchanan's curator insight, June 5, 2013 11:47 PM

This article is about digital technology and how it is used and integrated. Are we truly USING technology when it is not integrated? When we ask for assessment that is presented with powerpoint, for example, we could just as easily ask them to write it in a book or make a poster. Digital technology should be used to facilitate collaboration and build high level thinking skills, that is how learning occurs.

Technology use is the first step.  Technology integration is the opportunity to combine technology with pedagogy.  Technology infusion is the process of using technology as a tool for learning, thinking, and problem solving.

A New Literacy: Making Connections in Electronic Environments - YouTube

"This introduction video is an overview of a discussion about communication through electronic media. It explores and discusses internet communication, text messaging, social networks, and other electronic media: some of their uses, some myths created around them, and some ideas about how they can be used. Some of the video is based on the works of Dr. David Crystal, professor of linguistics and author. "


Jim Lerman's insight:

A succinct summation of the changed communication/information environment in which we live. Nicely done, although a bit Ango-centric.

An interesting little video to spark discussion at a faculty meeting at the beginning of the year. Maybe we assauge the fears of those we are still reluctant because of their own discomfort with the medium.
