The Paradox of Classroom Technology

The Paradox of Classroom Technology | ELT Teacher Training, Reflection & Development | Scoop.it

While the pervasive use of tablets, smartphones, laptops and digital education content is expanding around us, in the classroom, students are not actively using these technologies for learning—even within well-equipped classrooms where access is not the problem. AdvancED® research has found that examples of technology being put to use by students to strengthen learning are barely evident in classrooms today.

You are so right Nik.... not surprised either.... (though I keep on believing that things will change :-)
Ricard Garcia's curator insight, September 1, 2016 2:18 AM
This is a painful truth... a problem institutions must face and fight... otherwise, the gap between schools and society will become larger.

Swinburne LAS Centre's curator insight, January 10, 7:20 PM
Video-based reflection is widely used in other fields such as sports science and can be enormously useful in monitoring both verbal and non-verbal aspects of our teaching practice, which are so crucial in language teaching. The neutral eye of the lens can also be applied to any other aspect of the classroom you decide to focus on, making it a potentially rich source of data for action research initiatives.

Learning styles & the importance of critical self-reflection | Tesia Marshik | TEDxUWLaCrosse

"The belief in learning styles is so widespread, it is considered to be common sense. Few people ever challenge this belief, which has been deeply ingrained in our educational system. Teachers are routinely told that in order to be effective educators, they must identify & cater to individual students' learning styles; it is estimated that around 90% of students believe that they have a specific learning style but research suggests that learning styles don't actually exist! This presentation focuses on debunking this myth via research findings, explaining how/why the belief in learning styles is problematic, and examining the reasons why the belief persists despite the lack of evidence. Dr. Tesia Marshik is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Her research interests in educational psychology include student motivation, self-regulation, and teacher-student relationships. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
