Is technology dangerous?

Is technology dangerous? | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

So why do some of my lecturer’s discourage me from using “technology”? I can’t say for sure, but I would guess that, as is so often the case, they fear it because they do not understand it. And that is fine. Long gone are the days where the teacher is the beacon of all knowledge. But if you don’t understand something, you need to be open to learning about it, and if you can’t manage that then you should probably stop trying to train pre-service teachers.

Really well thought out article by a trainee teacher.

Interesting take as many educators fear tech and they may not be totally wrong.

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

 This education 3.0 concept combined with Keegan's levels of Ego Development should help educators and students in their question for glory.

Special thanks to Feed the Teacher (Giselle Santos) for sharing this diagram originally posted by Dr. Jackie Gerstein.  

 

The one point I really like is the definition of Education 3.0 - planning and implementing education.  The key is being thoroughly infused and reinvented. 

Jeremiah Stanley's curator insight, August 6, 2014 3:16 PM

This article provides a great foundation on web 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 and how making a shift to web 3.0 can benefit students in their learning.

A regional report on ICT integration and e-readiness in schools across Asia

A regional report on ICT integration and e-readiness in schools across Asia | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Within Asia there are wide variations in the level of investment in information and communication technology (ICT) in education. In countries like the Republic of Korea and Singapore, OECD member countries in Asia, governments have made commitments that outstrip those of some of their European counterparts. But, for many other countries in the region, the school-aged population has little or no access to ICT in the classroom.

From face-to-face teaching to online teaching: pedagogical transitions

From face-to-face teaching to online teaching: pedagogical transitions | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

As higher education has embraced online education as a way to reduce costs, increase flexibility, and enhance access to students it is important to gain an understanding of the perceptions of instructors moving into online teaching. This study found a change in the beliefs and teaching presence of the instructors from their initial resistance to online teaching to an approach which is mindful of the student experience and promotes a dialogical approach to online learning.

There are more benefits from implementing a blended learning approach than keeping the traditional teaching style; however, before incorporating online teaching into our classrooms, there are several factors teachers should take into account. Here is an interesting perspective offered by the University of Southern Queensland you might consider for the pedagogical transition.
