We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The Classroom

We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The Classroom | computer assisted language learning | Scoop.it
Technology plays a primary role in my teaching, but I rarely turn on the computer that makes the classroom “smart.” Occasionally, I project the class tweet stream. I am an advocate of Twitter for higher ed.

Evelyn Izquierdo's curator insight, March 12, 2013 8:03 AM

To err is human and acknowledging one's mistakes is the first step towards learning not to do them again. The best thing about making mistakes is the learning that comes out of them. Mistakes are indicative of an ongoing healthy process of learning. We all make mistakes and sometimes we even commit errors ( errors are considered to be much more severe than mistakes ) but we definitely differ in the way we look at our mistakes. People with " growth mind-set " tend to accept mistakes as natural happenings that enrich our life experiences. Similarly teachers with a growth mindset look at mistakes as precursors of learning, the engine of education . On the other hand, people with fixed mindset view them as obstacles in life, signs of incompetence and disappointment. Likewise,  teachers with a fixed mindset are more reluctant to tolerate mistakes and they consider them as a hindrance to learning.
