Technology Doesn't Teach, Teachers Teach

Technology Doesn't Teach, Teachers Teach | scatol8® | Scoop.it
No matter how far we evolve from the little red schoolhouse, we cannot afford to sacrifice the foundation of education that is built upon the unique relationship between teacher and student.

Education is undergoing a "seismic change" as more and more digital devices enter the classroom. This article looks at the digital devices and at the teacher, stating "the motherboard and the memory chip will never replace the passion and inspiration of a real-life teacher."

The article points out that for new technology to work teachers must be trained effectively in the new technology. Information on the replacement of traditional textbooks with digital textbooks is also discussed. Two school districts are mentioned that saw significant improvement with state testing scores (in specific subjects) with the introducation of digital textbooks.

Based on the information presented it is clear that for digital content to work well teachers must be trained. Without the training the achievment gap will not be impacted. For more information click through to the article.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 4:23 PM

I chose this resource based on its powerful and straightforward title. Technology supports teachers - it does not replace them. In this article, a study illustrated that professional development that aided teachers in developing engaging tech lessons that focused on testable objectives yielded incredible achievement data. The technology must be incorporated into a curriculum, it does not take the place of the curriculum.

NWI: Solar power sees surge in Porter County, IN | Post-Tribune

NWI: Solar power sees surge in Porter County, IN | Post-Tribune | scatol8® | Scoop.it

The Porter County Career Center has a bevy of energy-saving technologies on display — from LED lights to a wind turbine.

 

But the roof of the building is a busy place — as two dozen more solar panels are installed by students and a few professionals. They will join a dozen panels that were installed about two years ago.

 

The school joins an increasing number of Northwest Indiana residents and businesses installing solar panels to take advantage of energy savings and support green energy efforts.

 

Porter County Career Center Director Jon Groth said the solar panels and windmills the students have built prove their value on two fronts.

 

“Our philosophy is we’re trying to reduce our carbon footprint and lower our NIPSCO bills,” Groth said.

 

The panels serve a practical purpose during power outages. After severe storms knocked out power to thousands of residents in early August, Groth said the Career Center lights were “working the whole time because of the solar power.” Even if the solar power runs out, the school’s emergency lights operate on batteries.

15 Of The Sharpest Up And Coming CEOs In Silicon Valley

15 Of The Sharpest Up And Coming CEOs In Silicon Valley | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Here's the Tech CEO best of the best list via Business Insider. Tech startups CEOs give a great view of what's next.


Here's two from the full list that were quite fetching in ingenuity and business style.  It's also an easy to browse, via click, article. ~  Deb


Excerpts:


Jamie Wong speaks multiple languages and has spent her life traveling the world. Now she's building a startup that makes it much easier for everyone to do the same.]


Vayable basically shortens the process of planning a vacation from 30 hours down to about 5 minutes. It makes it easy to plan "experiences," like touring the Louvre with a French student instead of riding a tour bus around town.


Patrick Collison's Stripe has become the go-to provider for accepting payments online. It makes it dead simple to add a way to pay for things on just about any app.


That's great for other founders, because payments are typically the most tricky part of building an application, and can take months to finally get off the ground. With Stripe, it's just a few lines of code.
