This article points out that canned deliverables from tech companies are not personalized learning. Technology has its place in the classroom but we need to remember to teach the individual students. Teachers working with students using technology is most effective and personal.

"The central tenet of Watters’ perspective is unassailable. The engines of Silicon Valley are not interested in learners or educators. One does not need to look far to see the forces of individualism, neoliberalism, libertarianism, or imperialism at work."

This has always been the case. Henry Ford and other industrialists were not interested in the needs of schools and people. They were interested in their bottom line and how schools and people could add to that. It remains that way.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, January 6, 2014 11:48 AM

Abstract:

 

The aim of this study was to identify and rate the importance of the competencies required by students for effective performance in a university e-learning environment mediated by a learning management system. Two expert panels identified 58 e-learning competencies considered to be essential for e-learning. Of these competencies, 22 were related to the use of technology. The remaining 36 competencies encapsulated a range of practices considered to be essential for learning within a social constructivist framework. Six of the competencies identified were either new or substantially different from what had been previously identified in the literature. A survey of e-learning stakeholders rating the importance of the e-learning competencies indicated that the competencies were not of equal importance. Critically, a number of key competencies from a social constructivist perspective that dealt with interacting and working with others were rated as being unimportant. This suggests that there is a disconnect between what the literature says about the importance of social constructivism to e-learning environments in theory and what e-learning stakeholders perceive its importance to be in practice.
