Lou Salza's insight:

I worry that  young children who are encountering print obstacles need to have access to high quality information to develop their conceptual breadth and vocabulary.---Lou

Let's lay out some of the more confusing technology terms that educators will encounter on a regular basis and see just what is behind each one.

Lou Salza's insight:

Adam Heckler writes:

" The worst part about it is that the technology world moves so fast and changes so rapidly that the jargon and slang is extremely hard to keep up with, even for people who try to pay close attention.

So today I thought I’d bring you a mini-encyclopedia or mini-dictionary of sorts, where I’ll lay out some of the more confusing technology terms that educators will encounter on a regular basis. I’ll do my best to explain them as well, so you can at least sound knowledgeable if you are, say, stuck in a conversation with someone who knows a lot about technology. Here we go!..."

Technology at best only amplifies the pedagogical capacity of educational systems; it can make good schools better, but it can make bad schools worse.

I should state from the outset I'm not sure the impact of any new technology in the classroom will ever be truly measurable. It won't be for the want of trying and there are a number of case studie...

Lou Salza's insight:

The video on this site is remarkable --several languages, different subjects and topics--all telling a similar story: mobile technology boosts engagement and learning in school.--Lou

Excerpt:

The real impact of new technology in school doesn’t have anything to do with grades. The fact that I was able to bring many different opportunities for learning into my classroom always felt right as we went through the process at A level. As you can see in the video above, at the Stephen Perse Foundation the GCSE cohort had many opportunities to express their learning. At a time when collaboration and communication skills are at the top of any employers desirable qualities, it is fitting we are seeing more of it in our classrooms.

An excellent discussion starter related to evaluating the impact of ICT in education. A current focus for postgraduate students.

Amazing opportunity  for students to "see" Anciant Rome and explore monuments as they once looked and functioned.

Guardare l'antica Roma così come appariva nel 320 d.C. e volare giù per vedere edifici famosi in 3D. Seleziona 'Ancient Rome 3D'  nella Gallery di Google Earth.

It's astounding how modern technology can really take us back to ancient times to see how others not only lived but prospered.

Interpersonal learning , personalized learning, second life learning , 3d learning, collaborative learning and virtual learning , these are just some of the few buzz words you would be hearing so often in today’s educational literature. Things have changed , old methods and pedagogies are no longer relevant.
