We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The Classroom

We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The Classroom | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Technology plays a primary role in my teaching, but I rarely turn on the computer that makes the classroom “smart.” Occasionally, I project the class tweet stream. I am an advocate of Twitter for higher ed.
Kiruthika Ragupathi's insight:

An excellent article that talks about how the author has learnt to embrace edtech for what it strengthens and rise up with empathetic excellence where it falls short, and that technology is only an advantage if it means that teachers can get back to what they do best: educating instead of disseminating and assessing. It is so true when he says..."If it is “content”–that is, if it can be poured from chalice to vessel, if it can be contained–it has no place in the classroom."

A new understanding of knowledge production and learning challenges the core of learning design, demanding innovative and appropriate approaches to teaching and learning. We present a set of learning design principles drawn from the learner’s perspective. They focus on empowering learners in networked environments for fostering critical thinking and collaboration, developing competence based outcomes, encouraging peer assistance and assessment through social appraisal, providing strategies and tools for self-regulation, and finally using a variety of media and ICTs to create and publish learning resources and outputs."

As I note (perhaps too often), infotention involves practicing attentional self-training in conjunction with learning appropriate information tools. Dashboards such as Netvibes (RSS) and Hootsuite (social media) can help you coordinate the internal and external components. I use both Evernote and Hootsuite, so was pleased to see this short (under 5 minute) video about how to combine them productively

"Technology is what is now being blamed for multitasking overload.   In some situations, that is certainly the case.   In other situations, the issue might be too much work, an inefficient office, or just boredom with the job or school work.  We can change some of those conditions and not others—but we cannot even sort out what is causing our frustration, exhaustion, or sense of failure until we understand what multitasking is.  Once we realize that multitasking itself is the human condition—not an outcome only of too much email or social networking—then we can find practical ways to address the real problem, not the mythical one."

Cathy Davidson's "Now You See It" is an infotentionist's must-read. This blog post is more than a year old, but worth considering as a counterpoint to the experimental evidence that multitasking degrades performance. Maybe performance on single tasks isn't always the point. Like it or not, we live a world that requires multiple attentional antennae just to walk down the street (which you definitely should not do while looking at your phone).

Technology is not the sole driver of multitasking. It is a contributor and it probably appears to be accelerated in today's world. Most research indicates multitasking is not positive.

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, August 17, 2013 10:29 AM

Excellent article that I have read more than once,and has certainly challenged me to think about so many themes:  Leadership, Communication, Teaching, etc.

 

Thank you Ivon for sharing with us!!!

 

I particularly agree with this statement: "We can blame technology for our inefficiency but the real issue is competing desires that yield competing desires on our attention."

 

Are we leveraging technology and running it to fit our lives....or is technology running us? 

 

What do you think?

5 Tools for Reading Digital Text

5 Tools for Reading Digital Text | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"With text no longer relegated exclusively to the pages between the cover of a book or a magazine, the shift from paper to digital texts has brought on a whole new form of literacy. This upheaval in how we read brings with it new opportunities for learning as well as new challenges.

Experts refer to this phenomenon as transliteracy. In a study published in the peer-reviewed journal First Monday, Dr. Sue Thomas and colleagues defined transliteracy as 'the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks'."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 26, 2013 10:03 PM

When we think about reading today and the diverse platforms for reading we should be thinking of transliteracy. As schools gear up for Common Core assessments we need to be more aware of the fact that our students are reading (and writing) across many platform. There is also the knowledge that when reading online students may be clicking on hyperlinks that lead to other resources and begin to get lost.

Learn about some great tools that may be used to help students stay more focused and organized. This post lists five tools, providing explanations for each of them. The tools discussed are:

* Instapaper

* GoodReader

* Skitch

* Diigo

* Readablity

'Connectivism' and Connective Knowledge

'Connectivism' and Connective Knowledge | Technology in Pedagogy | Scoop.it

by Stephen Downes

 

"Let me explain why we take this approach and what connectivism is. At its heart, connectivism is the thesis that knowledge is distributed across a network of connections, and therefore that learning consists of the ability to construct and traverse those networks. Knowledge, therefore, is not acquired, as though it were a thing. It is not transmitted, as though it were some type of communication.

 

"What we learn, what we know -- these are literally the connections we form between neurons as a result of experience. The brain is composed of 100 billion neurons, and these form some 100 trillion connections and it is these connections that constitute everything we know, everything we believe, everything we imagine. And while it is convenient to talk as though knowledge and beliefs are composed of sentences and concepts that we somehow acquire and store, it is more accurate -- and pedagogically more useful -- to treat learning as the formation of connections."

I'm into the second week of my second MOOC with Coursera, studying Social Psychology (or in other words....understanding people and behaviours). I would advocate this style of learning for anyone who hasn't tried it yet - it's a great way to expand your knowledge into topics that might otherwise be difficult (or expensive) to access. This method of learning is particularly suited to continuos professional development. I'm less convinced that MOOCs would or could replace full or part-time degree courses.
