The Pros and Cons of Technology in the Classroom | Edudemic

The Pros and Cons of Technology in the Classroom | Edudemic | Digital Life | Scoop.it
Educational technology has its pluses and minuses. It’s up to teachers, administrators, and district personnel to decide whether the good outweighs the bad.
deniseroberts's insight:
I'm always up for a good debate. My take on the infusion of ed tech into the classroom is it's a good thing for students when the teacher teaching them has evolved into an excellent facilitator of the learning. .  If they have not made that leap...it's just another tool that will collect dust on a shelf.

The problem is that this debate often centers around the wrong question: Does technology belong in the classroom?

If we keep asking this question, we won’t make any progress. We know that technology belongs to the classroom. Have you ever asked whether technology belongs in your workplace? Technology is a tool that helps us develop and apply skills we all value – curiosity, problem-solving, persistence, collaboration, information literacy.
