The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning

The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning | Technology for Education | Scoop.it

The technology they use in their personal lives just makes sense for use in their learning as well. If a student badly wanted a new tablet or app for his or her own personal use but wanted nothing to do with it for any kind of learning whatsoever, we may need to look at the disconnect.

But there are other reasons why education consistently turns to technology

Huge advocate of Life Long Learning and the use of personal technology breaks down the barrier between the 'classroom' and the workplace.

Using E-Portfolios in the Classroom

Using E-Portfolios in the Classroom | Technology for Education | Scoop.it

With more and more schools going paperless or migrating to the "cloud" (storing files on the Internet), student work has become more easily shareable, accessible by many, and more easily organized. Many teachers have turned to digital portfolios -- or "e-portfolios" -- for their students. These digital portfolios have caused a huge shift in how teachers assign, collect and assess student classwork and projects.

Rebecca Delabrer's curator insight, October 5, 2014 9:45 PM

This article describes how student's work in school used to be more private and usually only seen by the teacher if it was done on paper. Now that schools are resorting to "paperless" classrooms, children's work is becoming much more easy to share and find and other things.

I don't think schools should go paperless. The internet is a dangerous place, especially for dumb kids our age. Not only that but the internet allows kids to cheat a lot easier than they already do now so it's promoting cheating indirectly.
