Why We Need Digital Wisdom

Why We Need Digital Wisdom | Technology's Use in Today's Classroom: EDU 204 | Scoop.it

Fewer and fewer jobs can be done without technology. Our increasingly sophisticated technologies enable our enhanced minds to do many previously impossible things, such as mass individualization, and quickly connecting and combining ideas from humans around the world.

Lauren Furgason's insight:

Its hard for me to even keep up with the changing technological world we live in... and I was BORN into a world with computers and "advanced" technology. However, with its rapid growth and continued evolution, I feel that the general publc, teaching proffesionals, parents, and students, DO NOT KNOW ENOUGH TO GET THEM THROUGH. I think that having at the very least "dabbled" in advanced technological education will prepare us and our children for the coming age.

Nice article by Marc Prensky. Love this quote "For today’s young people, using technology is as fundamental as reading was for their parents and grandparents. It underlies and supports everything they do."

What Is Successful Technology Integration?

What Is Successful Technology Integration? | Technology's Use in Today's Classroom: EDU 204 | Scoop.it

Before we can discuss how to shift our pedagogy or the role of the teacher in a classroom that is integrating technology, it is important to first define what "technology integration" actually means. Seamless integration is when students are not only using technology daily, but have access to a variety of tools that match the task at hand and provide them the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of content.

Technology integration is successful when the learning objective is achieved. I use technology often but to enhance and improve the learning experience.

N.C. Schools to Transition from Textbooks to IPads in the Classrooms, starting in Raliegh schools

N.C. Schools to Transition from Textbooks to IPads in the Classrooms, starting in Raliegh schools | Technology's Use in Today's Classroom: EDU 204 | Scoop.it
Lauren Furgason's insight:

I think it is imperative that IPads be incorperated into our classroom and the everyday lives and usage by teachers and students. Much like the transition in the 90's to fill every school with computers to benefit the educational experience of children, I think this is the next similar movement.

It looks great! I just took the tour and thought it has potential, so I subscribed as a beta user. Let's wait until I use it with my students!

Chwayita Ceejay January's insight: 

An interesting search engine directly used for educational purposes. It creates a mediated yet reciprocial intimacy between students and teachers outside the classroom environment. I'm quite fascinated with how students can engage in different lessons or levels according to the different teaching they would prefer.:) But alas! It would take quite a while before it kicks off here.
