Will technology replace teachers? No, but ... | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
In the future, will a machine replace me and smash other machines on my behalf? I've worked on, advised and evaluated educational technology projects in dozens of countries over the past fifteen years, mainly in middle and low income countries. As anyone who works intimately with information and communication technologies (ICTs) on a daily basis knows, change is a constant when working in the technology sector. (In contrast, while rhetoric about change is a constant in the education sector, chan

Education Reform: Pedagogy First, Technology Second

Education Reform: Pedagogy First, Technology Second | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it

"Pedagogy is the driver, technology the accelerator.” This popular thought has been making the rounds on social media, instilling the importance of “pedagogy first, technology second.” This kind of thinking speaks volumes to educators for many reasons. Technology is often branded ‘disruptive’, a term justly despised by many. After all, what educator wants disruption? By placing the emphasis on ‘disruptive’ technology, over pedagogy, we’re making the wrong argument for education reform. For an educator, changing pedagogical method is not as easy as many would like to believe. Changing method with ‘disruptive’ technology? Forget about it. What we should be looking at is rather the pedagogy behind the technology… the purpose behind the tools."

It's the “mismatch” problem manifested in underemployment
rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, March 12, 1:55 AM

I would agree with the writer's point of view, ultimately it is not technology that be a driving force in the transformation of education, higher education, rather it is the teacher, a well trained and skilled teacher who is the driving force behind transformation. It makes commmercial sense for business houses to invest more on technology rather than on the training of a skilled workforce especially when they begin to suffer from high levels of attrition. We have moved from back boards to green boards and on to white boards, but whether this has made a significant  to pedagogy is debatable. I have known of more cases of misuse of technology than postitive use, say in cases when more movies are shown in class than is requiered, and cases where powerpoints are merely a replacement for class lecture notes! One needs to see whether it is technology that will help the education industry move out of a state of stasis or it is the humble human factor, the teacher!

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, December 6, 2014 1:30 AM

As and educator, I see so much that is relevant in this writeup! Take for example the first instance, one should not use technology which creates short cuts, so often students would rather the teacher sent important notes on e-mail than take down important notes as the discussion progresses. They just don't want to take the trouble in note taking and writing on their note books! More often than not the very purpose of using technolgy is lost when it is not properly used to enhace creative thinking, and problem solving. Technology becomes an end that is when it becomes deadly! Technology shouldn't be used when it attempts to replace basic skills that our society values, take for example using the calculator on your I phone to do basic calculations. Ironically, I have seen how technology has in fact reduced interaction, making students poor listeners, they simply will not listen to each other. Technology should not be used when it reduces failure. Today we talk about Experiential Learning. For me, personally, experiential learning is about learning from one's experiences, even if it means learning from the pain of failure. You didn't learn to ride a bicycle without falling even once! Often we jump at new technology, we become victims of the Shiny New Tech Syndrome according to the writer of this article! Just because the keyboard looks inviting, it doesn't mean you abandon pen and paper, or even stopped writing notes! The list goes on, and every reason listed in this article is very important. This is a wonderful article, a must read for all progressive Educators!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 6, 2014 11:57 AM

When it undermines deep learning and creates dangerous shortcuts are two excellent points to begin the list with.
