In a recent online webinar for English Language Teachers, the lecturer started the webinar by asking participants to share their own definition of the term, Critical Thinking. With around 100 teachers from various backgrounds, there was a wide range of ideas and suggestions.

Being present- A critique of online education

Being present- A critique of online education | Reading Comprehension | Scoop.it

Too many online enthusiasts sell the new generation of students short by arguing that they can only learn if they are being entertained or if learning is an exciting, self-paced activity. Yet, we still need to teach people to concentrate and sustain their attention when things may get a little boring or difficult. Not all education should be fast-paced and visually stimulating; rather, people have to learn how to focus and stick with difficult and challenging tasks.

Noam Chomsky on Technology & Learning

Noam Chomsky on Technology & Learning | Reading Comprehension | Scoop.it

As far as technology itself and education is concerned, technology is basically neutral. It’s like a hammer. The hammer doesn’t care whether you use it to build a house or whether on torture, using it to crush somebody’s skull, the hammer can do either.

Tecnología y aprrendizaje.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 12, 2014 8:05 PM

Mindful use of each tool is indispensable in our learning and education. Only in schools, do we worry about mandating and prescribing a particular tool.

Do not agree technology is neutral like a hammer...
