Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, February 21, 10:17 PM

Great practical advice for us classroom teachers who are challenged by new technologies.  I'm using "Google Classroom" and find it helpful. Most of my students are more computer literate than I, which is an advantage sometimes.  I'm trying to keep a few "bytes" ahead of them.  This is another case of teacher and student learning from each other.  Nice article from Shell Terrell.  Aloha, Russ.

Somehow we all use technology, whether it is in the form of google forms/docs, and many of us use ppts. and so on. Teaching with technology is challenging mainly because you need to keep upto date with technology. Laptops are now passe, while tabs have most of the feature of laptops minus the weight!

I see no reason to doubt this list. It is in accordance with my anecdotal evidence. Tension may arise around teachers not being convinced of the content of the list or the depth of penetration of these trends into the lives of students and some teachers/schools.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, December 6, 2013 11:35 PM

This is a concern that we will always have when we press for more and more technology in Education especially in the form of I-Pads, Lap-tops, and internet connections. While no doubt, the intention might be to benefit the learners in the long run, the fact is that learners are smart enough to circumvent the safety measures that educationists are likely to place in the gadgets to prevent students from surfing internet sites which offer anything other than education based content. The question remains, how do we manage education based on Information Technology? If firewalls can be circumvented by enterprising young learners who are ready to open more and more "Pandora's Boxes', then what do we do? The fact of the matter is that students require constant adult supervision when they are working on their tablets and internet devices, the question is how effectively can one adult, a teacher supervise effectively thirty learners simultaneously working on the net for their projects without seeming to be breathing down their necks? The students in my school were given tablets for their D.A. test, and the moment they got the chance, they moved over to sites that were offering other things like music and free games, and this was observed not only in students of grade 8, but also science stream students sudying in grade 12. The question is, whether the use of unsupervised Information Technology is really worth the distractions it causes?

Visual for teachers that are apprehensive about technolgy

 

Meleny Weber's curator insight, December 15, 2013 5:52 PM

After watching this video, I truly learned a lot about the many different benefits of technology in the classroom. The man talking throughout the video starts off with an interesting qoute that grabbed my attention. He says, "Teachers will not be replaced by technology, but teachers who don't use technology will be replaced by those who do." This man truly believes that technology is the future of education, and all teachers should begin to accept that. All teachers should start using technology on a daily basis in their classroom. The rest of the video is him explaining his reasons for why teachers need to. Most of the reasons, I have already heard throughout other articles and blogs of similar nature. Some reasons that stood out to me where the fact that technology helps students with professional developmemnt. We are living in a world where the technology field/industry is continuosly growing, and we need people to work these jobs. You might as well start training the future professionals when they are young and in school. Another interesting reason is that technology in the classroom improves schools' test scores. At first I was skeptical, and was very curious as to the man's explanation. He went on to say that the use of computers in classrooms allows students to each move at their own pace. If there is one student who really understands a concept much quicker than the rest of the class, that student can move on to the next subject by using the internet and pre-recorded lectures from the teacher. This is beginning to get into the idea of blended learning, another one of my scoopit topics. I am beginning to see that the increase in technology in classrooms around the United States, is the reason behind the new wave of blended learning or "flipped classroom" in so many of the schools today. I enjoyed that this video did not focus on one specific piece of technology, but that it talked about several different ones you can incorporate into the classroom for different reasons.
