There are a few important criteria that education technology must satisfy before being used in education. Otherwise, we have a problem.

Jill Baker's insight:

Great article about how teachers should not just give their students the tools of technology, rather they need to have an understanding of technology themselves in order to give their students the best opportunity to higher learning.

All educational institutions need to upgrade and update their technology. This should be assisted financially by the government. Rather than interfere in actual teaching the ministers should ensure that education technology is actually available and accessible. As teachers never stop learning it is within their interests to keep themselves updated with technology which can help them to spend less time continually updating and trying to differentiate lessons for 15 or more students daily, weekly.... Perhaps if teachers were more valued there would not be so many of them leaving the profession.

An article in Scientific American suggests that, initially, reading on screens may diminish our capacity to understand what we read. But that could be changing. (“@csmonitor: Are e-readers hurting our #reading comprehension?
Jill Baker's insight:

As new generations start reading more from screens, it is interesting to understand the effects and how they are changing.
