Where’s the creativity in coding?

Where’s the creativity in coding? | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
For more than four decades, the subject of computing has only managed to inspire a small percentage of students. In September 2014, following the realisation that technology now plays a key role in everyday life at home, work and school, the national curriculum changed and required all schools to teach computing to children aged five to16. The intention was to teach children how to problem solve and empower them to become creators of technology, rather than consumers, in preparation for life beyond school.

How Important is use of Technology in Education

How Important is use of Technology in Education | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
There were a huge number of positives and negatives to education technology. But, gradually as technology was embraced by the educational institutes, they realized the importance of technology in education. Its positives outnumbered the negatives and now, with technology, education has taken a whole new meaning that it leaves us with no doubt that our educational system has been transformed owing to the ever-advancing technology. Technology and education are a great combination if used together with a right reason and vision.

Important?  It is vital, but so is an understanding of how to handle it.
Julian Diaz's curator insight, May 26, 4:17 PM
"Technology and education are a great combination if used together with a right reason and vision." 

I start citing this sentence and asking teh question "do you really think technology is that important for education?"

As the world and society itself advance, technology takes its role as well. It's undeniable, technology is all over the world and it is always around us, it takes part of our lives in every moment and every minute, and it is taking part in education too (although not very fast) 

in my personal opinion, we should take into account technology in education, not just because it is growing in our lives, but because it might help teachers and students to improve the way we learn and teach. Take into account, for example, education 40 years ago, i would say it was more stupid and archaic, getting students to spit out data and information unuseful for their lives, but nowadays we become a new human kind and as technology is evolving, our way of thinking should evolve as well.

in this article there are numbered a list of posibilities and advantages of using technology inside the classroom as well as ways of using ir for educational purposes. Enjoy the reading.
Jillian Schaibly's curator insight, July 12, 10:24 PM
A good quick read about the transforming of technology and the positive and negatives of what it looks like in school today. Principals need to be aware of how technology is being used in their school and the positive and negatives of technology use.

A Digital Future: What will EdTech look like by 2117

A Digital Future: What will EdTech look like by 2117 | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
Rapidly changing technology continues to make its mark on K-12 learning. Let’s take a look at the future and see how technology will improve education in the next 100 years. What will be the new innovations in EdTech? What will future classrooms look like? Will the need to study medicine, law, and science disappear when robots start working in these professions? What about art? Sure, no robot can be better than David Bowie, Leonardo Da Vinci, or Shakespeare (not yet), but with the number of innovations we see every day, we can’t be sure it won’t happen. While these innovations could have some detrimental side effects (such as job loss, impacts to the economy, etc.), they also have their advantages. It is up to us to use these innovations with caution and maximize their benefits. Here are the technologies that I believe will transform education by 2117.
