What Happens When Students Use Technology Better Than Teachers?

What Happens When Students Use Technology Better Than Teachers? | TechTalk | Scoop.it

"You know the content, you understand pedagogy, and you can navigate the minefield of diplomacy when dealing with parents, students, administrators, literacy coaches, and the local news station when they want to see the iPads glow on the students faces.

You know how to manage and coddle, inspire and organize, assess and deliver content.

But the technology is different. That part you do okay with, but, truth be told, the students are geniuses with technology. Born hackers. And of course they are, you tell yourself.

They’re digital natives."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 19, 5:12 PM

I am sitting in a university library with some digital natives. Most of them are here to learn and it shows.

Why Teachers Matter More in a Flipped Classroom

Why Teachers Matter More in a Flipped Classroom | TechTalk | Scoop.it

"...teachers are in fact more valuable when they teach using a flipped approach.  If all teachers did was deliver content, then maybe the legislators were right.  But I believe students need teachers physically there. This is because we humans are, as a whole, relational beings.  And teaching is a social interaction between teacher and students and students and students.  Our students need us more than they need a video made by someone they don’t know teaching them something they may or may not want to learn about. Teaching is fundamentally about human interactions and that can’t be replaced by technology."
