[PDF] The paradox of classroom technology

[PDF] The paradox of classroom technology | TechLib | Scoop.it
Learners’ use of digital tools and other technology to support their learning in our K-12 systems continues to be sporadic and often not observed despite the proliferation of use outside of school. Based on an analysis of three years of direct classroom observations in K-12 schools across 39 states and 11 countries, AdvancED found there are still relatively few classrooms in which the use of digital tools and technology is a regular part of a student’s school experience. In more than half (52.7 percent) of classrooms direct observations show no evidence students are using technology to gather, evaluate, or use information for learning; two-thirds of classrooms show no evidence of students using technology to solve problems, conduct research, or to work collaboratively.
 
Trained and certified observers conduct classroom observations as a part of AdvancED’s continuous improvement process which could include STEM Certification, accreditation, readiness and/or diagnostic review. Each observation lasts a minimum of 20 minutes during which observers use the learner-centric eProve™ Effective Learning Environments Observation Tool® (eleot®) to gather data focused on the activities learners are engaged in, their discussions and interactions, resources they are using for learning, their behaviors and dispositions during the learning process, etc. Observers rate each of the 30 eleot items on a four-point scale where 4 = Very Evident, 3 = Evident, 2 = Somewhat Evident and 1 = Not Observed

Víctor Xepiti Eme's curator insight, August 1, 12:13 AM
We need to ensure that teachers are provided support and training so that they know how to integrate students’ use of technology into their classrooms and create a student-centric learning environment. Until teachers and administrators
are convinced that technology can be a help not a hindrance to learning, the shift will not happen.
The teacher is the key to students successfully using technology as a learning and problem-solving tool. Students thrive when the teacher requires students to use technology not only for researching and writing but also to solve problems, work collaboratively and develop creativity
malek's curator insight, August 4, 9:52 AM

While numerous surveys suggest that the pervasive use of tablets, smartphones, laptops and digital education content in the classroom is expanding and changing the role of teachers, the AdvancED study found little evidence of technology being used by students to strengthen learning in classrooms today.

Lifelong Learning and Technology :: Pew Research Center | TechLib | Scoop.it

Descripton by The Scout Report

 

"How, and where, do adults learn once they have left formal schooling? For those who identify as lifelong learners, where does technology fit into the equation? This report from the Pew Research Center answers these questions and more as it discloses the learning activities of nearly 3,000 Americans, aged 18 and older. As researcher John Horrigan reveals, learning in a physical setting, such as in a classroom, a library, or a place of worship, is still the preferred choice for most adults. In other words, learning activities are still very much place-based pursuits of knowledge. Another finding from the study that may or may not come as a surprise to readers, is that access to information technology remains an issue. While the Internet plays an important role in personal and professional learning pursuits for those who already have high levels of education and easy access to technology, such as a home broadband connection or a smartphone, the Internet remains on the periphery of learning activities for those with less education and lower incomes. Colorful graphs and charts round out the study, and interested readers may explore these key findings and others directly from this site or via downloadable PDF."

Description by The Scout Report

 

"This blog, written by Mills Kelly of the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, "considers the intersection of digital technologies and history." As the author would likely admit, what that means changes depending on the week. Recent posts have taken on the narrative hegemony of the U.S. World & News Report's college rankings, questions about how history should be written in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and the tensions between playfulness and rigor in academic scholarship. A simple search feature makes for easy scouting, as well as the option to filter posts by Scholarship, including such topics as Digital Campus, Longform Blog Essays, Making the History of 1989, and others."

If you are an online k-12 teacher, or hope to be one: READ this article.


Reporter Darren Samulesohn provides a non-partisan overview of k-12 virtual schooling.  This is a refreshingly in depth story about the recent history of k-12 online schools. You'll also get a good sense of current political, economic and educational realities in this booming field.


There are a number of researchers who would contest the claim that "Nobody knows how well it works".  But it is more than clear that the results are mixed and far from complete.
