Is Technology Holding Students Back? | Edudemic

Is Technology Holding Students Back? | Edudemic | Modern Educational Technology and eLearning | Scoop.it
Today, a day without tech being used in the classroom would be an unusual day indeed. In fact, according to a survey by Front Row Education, 75% of teachers say they use technology daily with their students. Tablets and laptops are now common in many classrooms. These devices can be loaded with education programs and apps for students, and using this kind of technology makes it easy for teachers to track student progress.

On the cutting edge of ed-tech you’ll find tools like virtual reality and 3D printing. By using virtual reality technology, like Google Glass, students can visit other locations without ever leaving their desks. These tools use 3D imagery to make the wearer feel like they’re exploring a realm in person. 3D printing also gives students opportunities to explore cutting-edge concepts in the classroom. Students can design objects on a computer and then “print” them out on a 3D printer, which uses plastic or other materials to create the object. These kinds of technologies may currently be cost prohibitive for many schools, but you’re likely to see them being adopted by classrooms in the coming years.

People who have ready access to technology are still not aware that there are many just getting online without the sophistication of integration of technology or special devices.

Like almost everything else - a little bit of this mixed with that gives the all round environment.

Será que vamos seguir este exemplo?

John Purificati's comment, January 13, 2014 7:09 AM
If we cannot show our students that we can trust what they do, then we are really are missing an important piece in this whole process of education. There are other favorable alternatives to the use of drones.

John Rudkin's insight:

All learning technologies have a place, but "technology' - in the form of a solution, support and application device or system "decays" over time. It goes from technology to facility.....and falls from the innovation spot that breaks it into use. That said, drawing with a stick in mud, once a real innovation to led to early man being able to convey and communicate is still relevant in some situations. Mind you, saying that, I have to refrain from pointing these things out in case the current Education Secretary here in england decides to add it to the curriculum ;-)
