The Relationship Between Technology And Education

The Relationship Between Technology And Education | Semantic Web  in the classroom | Scoop.it

The Relationship Between Technology And Education: byod, literacy, mobile learning, web 2.0

 

The following presentation from Steven Wheeler, Associate Professor at the University of Plymouth, explores some of the changes in both technology and education, including game-based learning, gamification, augmented reality, and mobile learning.

 

An interesting addition to the presentation are ideas from Nova Spivak that behind all of these minor changes is a larger shift from 2.0 to 3.0–from people and tools to knowledge and intelligence.


Evolving Technology

1. Web 1.0 (The Web): Connect Information

2.Web 2.0 (The Social Web): Connects People

3. Web 3.0 (Semantic Web): Connects Knowledge

4. Web x.0 (Meta Web): Connects Intelligence

 

The Technology and Education Connection

So how exactly does technology impact education? This is a huge question that an entire blog could dedicate itself to and never run out of content, but let’s zoom in to the classroom level for a moment and have a look at four general trends.

 

For better or for worse technology…

1. Can decrease dwell time with a media (e.g., a video, a tweet, a meme, an essay)

2. Can increase the diversity and rate of consumption of information

3. Emphasizes need for critical research skills, including data filtering, curation, evaluation, and citation

4. Encourages the socialization of ideas

 

While the evolution of the internet, the growth of mobile learning and BYOD, and other related movements are all extremely visible, they still boil down to the same basic idea: literacy.

Lessons Worth Sharing | TED-Ed | Semantic Web  in the classroom | Scoop.it

description by The Scout Report

 

"TED-Ed is a multifaceted educational platform based on the knowledge-proliferating philosophies of TED, the organization made famous by its renowned TED talks. To take full advantage of TED-Ed, educators will first want to explore the existing Lessons, of which there are thousands. A drop down menu reveals a dozen subjects, including The Arts, Business & Economics, Health, Mathematics, and others. Various filters, including Content, Grade Level, and Duration, help narrow down to a specific topic. Some of the best lessons, such as "The Benefits of Good Posture," have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, and include thought provoking, ready-made multiple choice and open-answer questions and prompts for student discussions. Educators who would like to use the platform to build their own lessons around web videos (from TED, YouTube, or Vimeo, for example) will need to create an account. Registration is easy, however, and only requires an email and password before creation of video-based lessons can occur."
