How Schools Can Respond To The Threat Of Technology

How Schools Can Respond To The Threat Of Technology | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it

"As schools try to utilize technology, they need to understand which aspects (or services) of school are likely to be better accomplished through technology. They should “outsource” or embrace technology and allow it to perform functions that were previously delegated to people, even instructors and advisors. This will allow staff and faculty, instructors and advisors to focus on higher-level tasks."

Fact or Fiction?: Video Games Are the Future of Education | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it

"Video games are playing an increasing role in school curricula as teachers seek todeliver core lessons such as math and reading—not to mention new skills such as computer programming—in a format that holds their students’ interests. Some herald this gamification of education as the way of the future and a tool that allows students to take a more active role in learning as they develop the technology skills they need to succeed throughout their academic and professional careers."

"Some MOOC skeptics believe that the only students fit to learn in massive open online courses are those who are already well educated. Without coaching and the support system of a traditional program, the thinking goes, ill-prepared students will not learn a thing.


Not so, according to researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology."
