Alexandra Guité's curator insight, August 17, 2013 1:02 PM

"Professor Mitra is a Physicist and teaches Educational Technology at Newcastle University. Some years ago he had a revolutionary idea: “The Hole in the wall”. He installed computers in the streets of the slums of India and observed that children organize by themselves and learn naturally. So have we all a teacher’s soul inside us?''

The Granny Cloud.  What an inspiring notion!

Ricard Garcia's curator insight, August 29, 2013 2:21 AM

Like it or not, things are moving in one direction, and that is where Mitra is pointing at!

How Computers Can Impede Spaces of Learning | DMLcentral

How Computers Can Impede Spaces of Learning | DMLcentral | TeensScienceandSoul | Scoop.it

It’s not enough to give these devices to students and teachers and expect classroom practice to shift. The preservice teachers I work with are using technology in ways that are familiar to me. Some of the obvious examples: they not-so-discretely text in class and they occasionally get wrapped up in Facebook or online chats with friends when the class is engaged in a class wide discussion. These examples are akin to what I’ve seen in my high school experience. And if these are the students who are going to be our future teachers soon, do we really expect radical shifts in how they treat and adapt technology in schools?

Since we are living in a world where technology plays an important role in daily life, and that includes the classroom, teacher education institutions must develop strategies on how teachers should adapt to changing technologies in a way that it should have positive impact in the classroom, and not the other way around.
carldowse's curator insight, July 29, 2013 6:21 AM

A useful reminder of the possible pitfalls of tapping into the connectivity offered by modern-day technology.

Thank you for sharing.

Tonya Ward Singer's curator insight, January 31, 11:57 AM

Provocative article, especially the questions at the bottom, including: What happens when students don't know what they don't know?

 

I ask this for us as communities and a socieity, what happens when we don't know what we don't know?     

 

History has some terrifying answers on what people can do collectively when locked into a set idea of "knowledge."   

 

How can we best leverage technology to support students as critical thinkers, curious and empowered?
