How digital technology is changing the university lecture

How digital technology is changing the university lecture | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

The idea that teachers should teach and students should listen presumes that teachers know more than their students.


While this was generally true back when textbooks where a rarity, and may have been partly true since the invention of the public library, it is most likely untrue for at least many students in this era of the “active learner” (AKA “digital natives”).

6 Ways Social Media Can Change Your Classroom | Edudemic | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it
Social media is broadly defined as online sites or tools where people create and share content in written and visual formats. Students are social beings and want to share their opinions publicly, so it’s easy to why social media sites hold such an appeal.


Perhaps that’s why teachers who used to be concerned with students texting, tweeting, pinning and posting during class time, have begun to harness the power of their students’ favorite online sites.

“If only I could have learned Spanish three years ago…”

“If only I learned about investing when I was still in my early twenties…”

To quote Tony Robbins: "One skill you want to master in this day and age we live in, if you want to have an extraordinary life, is the ability to learn rapidly."
