Wanted: Long-Term Thinking about Technology and Education | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Educators need to think long-term about the role of technology in learning
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

But reacting too quickly could be as bad as adapting too slowly. As soon as the newest experiment in higher-learning technology is announced, would-be experts race to declare its success or failure. Even if their snap guesses prove correct in the near term, any alleged breakthrough will likely be sent to the scrapyard before long to make way for the next educational techno-marvel. Given what we know about the progress of technology, we need to ask which advances will persist longer than a few months.
