Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
Informational technology needs to be holistically integrated into our learning environments.

The integration of information technology into our unique learning environments can be greatly enhanced if we apply constructivist approaches. Such approaches could include, but are not limited to discovery learning, inquiry based learning, play-based learning and making. But they also include listening, reflecting, and taking the time to process. Essentially, we want our learners to become great thinkers. We want learners to take an active role in the learning process and move away from the passive regurgitation of information being passed from a teacher to a student. Effective infusion of information technology into our learning environments is an excellent way to achieve this.

In our world, information technology is not just a means to an end. It more about the information and how we use it that is the most important. How to find it, how to process it, how to use it, and how to build on it. The technology we use facilitates and re-shapes this use of information in many new ways. For instance, no longer are we following learning in a linear fashion, say, based on a textbook. Rather, we are working in flexible frameworks where learners can focus on big ideas, but follow their learning along multiple paths happening all at once in the learning environment.

Students want Laptops, flexible digital tools in the classroom

Students want Laptops, flexible digital tools in the classroom | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

As digital tools continue to infiltrate college campuses, students and educators alike should rejoice. McGraw-Hill Education’s 2017 Digital Study Trends Survey found that 60 percent of students indicated digital learning tools have at least slightly improved their grades and have been very or extremely helpful in their academic life.

Overall, the students said that laptops — over things such as print materials and smartphones — are the devices they are most likely to use in class, for homework and for exam prep. A whopping 86 percent labeled laptops as an important tool for studying while only 33 percent said the same about smartphones and tablets.

5 Risks Posed by the Increasing Misuse of Technology in Schools

5 Risks Posed by the Increasing Misuse of Technology in Schools | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it
The greatest fear of parents and teachers is that the tech industry wants to replace teachers with computers. They fear that the business leaders want to cut costs by replacing expensive humans with inexpensive machines, that never require health care or a pension. They believe that education requires human interaction. They prefer experience, wisdom, judgment, sensibility, sensitivity and compassion in the classroom to the cold, static excellence of a machine.

This is a Diane Ravitch article. Teaching is relational and adds the human touch computers never can.

There are likely more than five risks. For example, the picture looks and I guess feels like a "traditional" classroom with desks in neat orderly rows.

This panel exposes what we have been talking for a long time about Educational Technology (EdTech). EdTech is more effective when it increases the human effort to learning skills and competencies of high cognitive level. Doing assignments, answering questions, watching videos, taking digital notes and studying for exams are instructional activities of little cognitive value. These competences are not useful in the millennium professional field. The education system should promote the use of EdTech to turn students into autonomous learners, entrepreneurs and scientists working to eradicate hunger, poverty, social inequality, gender inequality, environmental pollution, climate change, and corruption.
