When Not to Use Technology: 15 Things That Should Stay Simple In Education

When Not to Use Technology: 15 Things That Should Stay Simple In Education | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

If we’re going to integrate technology into education successfully, we need to understand the difference between learning “from computers” and learning “with technology.”


When students learn “from computers,” the computers essentially serve as information delivery systems. In this capacity, technology simply presents a student with basic knowledge. Learning “with technology,” by contrast, means using technology as a tool that can be applied to a variety of goals in the learning process.


The point is, educational technology has advanced far beyond what can easily be measured by standardised tests, and if we do not take advantage of this fact, then we are doing our students a disservice.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, December 6, 2014 1:30 AM

As and educator, I see so much that is relevant in this writeup! Take for example the first instance, one should not use technology which creates short cuts, so often students would rather the teacher sent important notes on e-mail than take down important notes as the discussion progresses. They just don't want to take the trouble in note taking and writing on their note books! More often than not the very purpose of using technolgy is lost when it is not properly used to enhace creative thinking, and problem solving. Technology becomes an end that is when it becomes deadly! Technology shouldn't be used when it attempts to replace basic skills that our society values, take for example using the calculator on your I phone to do basic calculations. Ironically, I have seen how technology has in fact reduced interaction, making students poor listeners, they simply will not listen to each other. Technology should not be used when it reduces failure. Today we talk about Experiential Learning. For me, personally, experiential learning is about learning from one's experiences, even if it means learning from the pain of failure. You didn't learn to ride a bicycle without falling even once! Often we jump at new technology, we become victims of the Shiny New Tech Syndrome according to the writer of this article! Just because the keyboard looks inviting, it doesn't mean you abandon pen and paper, or even stopped writing notes! The list goes on, and every reason listed in this article is very important. This is a wonderful article, a must read for all progressive Educators!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 6, 2014 11:57 AM

When it undermines deep learning and creates dangerous shortcuts are two excellent points to begin the list with.

The 10 biggest online learning trends of 2015 | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

One of the more interesting things to understand:

Online learning (online education, MOOCs, learning management system, etc.) is expanding and it’s going to be important to figure out how to accurately and efficiently process all the information.


So, we look right away to the two trends - to "big data" and "cloud computing" as a way to crunch all those numbers.  


In the whole article check out some other online learning trends of 2015 and see also the enclosed Infographic from www.talentlms.com.


  • Big data
  • Gamification
  • Personalized learning
  • Mobile learning
  • Focus on return-on-investment
