Why Smartboards are a Dumb Initiative

Why Smartboards are a Dumb Initiative | The e-learning Professional | Scoop.it

Having said those two things, if I was teaching I would be thankful for a Smartboard only because I’m a gadget geek. Personally, though, I’d rather everyone in our education system start working towards re-imagining what’s possible.

"Dumb" is pretty strong. Check out this teacher and blogger's opinion of the IWB debate. 

Amy O'Connor's curator insight, July 7, 2015 11:22 PM

This is the blog of an educator who is frustrated with boring and pointless school initiatives. She makes the case that SMARTboards are just a glorified computer, only larger and with touchscreen technology rather than a mouse. She accuses administrators of always wanting something big to show for the money they spend on technology, and that they are not thinking clearly.

Personal Learning Environments and Vygotsky - Graham Attwell (April, 2010)

...

Within this perspective a Personal Learning Environment could be seen as allowing the representation of knowledge, skills and prior learning and a set of tools for interaction with peers to accomplish further tasks. The PLE would be dynamic in that it would allow reflection on those task and further assist in the representation of prior knowledge, skills and experiences. In this context experiences are seen as representing performance or practice. Through access to external symbol systems (Clark, 1997) such as metadata, ontologies and taxonomies the internal learning can be transformed into externalised knowledge and become part of the scaffolding for others as a representation of a MKO within a Zone of Proximal Development. Such an approach to the design of a Personal Learning Environment can bring together the everyday evolving uses of social networks and social media with pedagogic theories to learning.

Ken Morrison's comment, November 25, 2011 6:42 PM
Thank You for sharing this!
I sometimes fail to find the perfect balance between the Constructivist idea that inquiry/tension is the catalyst for engaged learning and this following quote:
”During scaffolding the first step is to build interest and engage the learner. Once the learner is actively participating, the given task should be simplified by breaking it into smaller sub-tasks. During this task, the teacher needs to keep the learner focused, while concentrating on the most important ideas of the assignment. One of the most integral steps in scaffolding consists of keeping the learner from becoming frustrated. The final task associated with scaffolding involves the teacher modelling possible ways of completing tasks, which the learner can then imitate and eventually internalise” (Dahms et al., 2007).
This article gave me some important things to think about. Thanks
