How Technology Is Transforming the Way We Teach and Learn

How Technology Is Transforming the Way We Teach and Learn | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it
Our education system is in need of reform. Most students are not taught to be self-motivated lifelong learners, nor do they come out of the school system with the skills, mindsets, and values required to survive a world of accelerating change. Most students do not graduate to feeling inspired to contribute to human progress.

The purpose of education | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Disciplining Education Technology

Disciplining Education Technology | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it
I confess. I’m a little perplexed by the recent call to create a new discipline for education technology. There are already hundreds of academic conferences and academic publications and professional organizations and published studies devoted to education technology; hundreds of schools offer degrees – primarily graduate degrees – in education technology. Depending on what you count as ed-tech, the field has been around for at least a century.
