9 Wrong And 8 Right Ways Students Should Use Technology - Edudemic

9 Wrong And 8 Right Ways Students Should Use Technology - Edudemic | Instructional Technology News | Scoop.it
A thoughtful visual about ways students should use technology asks the big question: what do you want kids to do with technology?

 

Technology is a tool. It’s not a learning outcome. Too often do we get distracted by all the activities and action we can perform with an iPad or some other device. We can post to Edmodo! Make a Prezi! Post to Facebook! All exciting things, to be sure. But these are not actually learning outcomes. You could have a 1:1 iPad classroom where your students create a bazillion (it’s a word, I swear) presentations all about how much they’re learning.

 

 

But they’re not really learning. They’re using a device.

 

 

That’s the idea behind the fabulous visual I saw on George Couros’ blog (great read!) who found it from Bill Ferriter on Twitter all about ways students should use technology. It asks a simple question: what do you want kids to do with technology? The answer(s) are divided into two columns and it’s pretty obvious what the goal of the visual is: to show you that technology is a tool in the classroom and not meant to be the focus of attention. It’s meant to enable, not overwhelm. It’s meant to enhance learning, not box it in.
