How Computers Can Impede Spaces of Learning | DMLcentral | General |

It’s not enough to give these devices to students and teachers and expect classroom practice to shift. The preservice teachers I work with are using technology in ways that are familiar to me. Some of the obvious examples: they not-so-discretely text in class and they occasionally get wrapped up in Facebook or online chats with friends when the class is engaged in a class wide discussion. These examples are akin to what I’ve seen in my high school experience. And if these are the students who are going to be our future teachers soon, do we really expect radical shifts in how they treat and adapt technology in schools?

Since we are living in a world where technology plays an important role in daily life, and that includes the classroom, teacher education institutions must develop strategies on how teachers should adapt to changing technologies in a way that it should have positive impact in the classroom, and not the other way around.
