The Problem Is Wasted Time, Not Screen Time

The Problem Is Wasted Time, Not Screen Time | News Through Tech ( or is it Tech through News?) | Scoop.it

More than ever, we need to be intentional about how and when young people use technology in order to make it productive time.


 


Are today’s students spending too much time in front of computer screens? The more important question is: are students engaged in powerful learning experiences and, whenever possible, given voice and choice in what, how, and when they learn? Digital technology can powerfully facilitate this process, if thoughtful adults deploy it wisely. Otherwise, it can be mind-numbing, or worse.

How Technology Can Expand Creativity and Innovation in Education

How Technology Can Expand Creativity and Innovation in Education | News Through Tech ( or is it Tech through News?) | Scoop.it

 Creativity has always been a part of a successful classroom, however recent advances in technology are making it possible to increase the ability for students to use their creativity in academia. With the ability to take and store thousands of pictures and videos, and listen to music in the palms of our hands, our students have the ability to be more and more creative in their projects, assignments, as well as group and individual tasks.

Sara Astros Rojas's curator insight, October 11, 11:55 PM
Technology is part of our daily lifes, and we need to integrate it in our classroom, since foster creativity and innovation and encourage the development of new ideas that reach thousands through social media
Alexander Daron's curator insight, October 15, 11:06 AM

I chose this resource because I agree 100% with the title. When I have used different technology and different programs with my students, they love it. Students in todays society get bored sitting in class with teachers talking to them. They want to be up and moving around working with technology to help them learn. I hope that this article will prove to our teachers that they must use technology for the benefit of their students. I have been in special education classrooms where autistic students were benefiting so much from programs on the iPad. Implementing these practices is so important to our students. 

Alexander Daron's curator insight, October 15, 11:42 AM

I chose this resource because students can be so creative when using technology in their education. They aren't restricted, and can create assignments or projects that make sense to them. They aren't restricted, and don't have to do exactly what the teacher tells them. I hope that this article will come true for many schools around America. Too often, teachers are afraid to let students be creative with the use of technology, because it is outside of their comfort zone to let the students venture off and create their own learning opportunities.
