Technology in education: if students aren't worried, why are teachers?

Technology in education: if students aren't worried, why are teachers? | Navtej Kohli CDC | Scoop.it

I couldn't agree more. As teachers, our role must change to one that enables, guides, personalises and embraces digital technology as a fundamental part of student learning. The most dangerous thing we can do to our students is to keep doing what our teachers and professors did to us:

Our role is to convince teacheer sthat Technology is here to stay. Nothing more scary than colleagues stubbornly refusing to get into the wave of this digital world.It reminds me of the times when voiced films were seen as "the devil"

Rebundling Higher Education: A Critical Move to Avoid the Fate of the Newspaper

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 9, 2013 11:18 AM

Two especially important ways in which higher education differs from the newspaper industry help to militate against a complete unbundling of higher education. Perhaps the most important of these is the advantage of linking courses, testing and accreditation in order to get the most learning, the best assessment of that learning and the most value for the student in terms of recognized achievement and mastery. This is especially true in advanced courses, in laboratory and writing courses and in established universities with a name that carries over to a degree. The second factor is closely related. Exciting things happen when people are brought together in a setting devoted to education. Social networks are formed, which provide motivation, support, mutual learning and long-term relationships. College campuses can be tremendously exciting places. Can the web be just as exciting?

'Information is power': PCs for Maine provides families with technology education and access to low-cost computers | Bangor Daily News

'Information is power': PCs for Maine provides families with technology education and access to low-cost computers | Bangor Daily News | Navtej Kohli CDC | Scoop.it

Memories of the young girl pestered by classmates because she was without a computer to complete a school assignment stick with Jodi Martin.

 

As executive director of PCs for Maine, based in Belfast, she has been witness for the last 14 years to cases in which technology and information are just out of reach. And the economic and personal consequences are steep, she said.

 

“Information is power,” Martin said. “Information can be healing, information can be inspiring. Information can be sorrowful and dreadful and scary but it’s all the good things with it. Information is everything.”

 

This year, the nonprofit that started in Chris and Jodi Martin’s kitchen is eyeing a move south to Westbrook by the end of the summer. The expansion will give PCs for Maine and the store that supports it, PC Medix, a presence closer to one of its key corporate donors, Idexx, and a new market for people who face barriers to accessing technology and the Internet, including not having the proper guidance. They’re two ends of a problem state and industry officials have identified as putting the brakes on economic development in Maine.

 

A recent study by the state’s broadband access authority found nearly 97 percent of Maine households have access to high-speed Internet in 2013. Around 75 percent subscribed.

 

“There are two primary barriers to entry,” said Phil Lindley, head of the ConnectMe Authority. “One is people don’t understand the need or value of having a connection to the Internet, and the second barrier is cost.”

 

That’s where PCs for Maine and PC Medix come in, he said.

21st Century Work: Career-Readiness Isn't What It Used To Be

21st Century Work: Career-Readiness Isn't What It Used To Be | Navtej Kohli CDC | Scoop.it

"The way we think about work is changing. Thinking of jobs, careers, and pay is–by some–being replaced with the idea of work, relationships, and meaning. Technology and the resulting connectivity are a part of this. In the 21st century, we all have personal “brands”–digital footprints that precede and proceed us, leaving a record of our interactions and ideas for anyone to see."
