10 Ways Edtech is Reinventing the College Lecture

10 Ways Edtech is Reinventing the College Lecture | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Can you remember the times when only a notebook and pen were welcome in a college lecture? Taking notes by hand is quickly becoming an obsolete way of keeping up with the class in the face of educational technology. Edtech inspires students to take the things they learn in lecture and apply them to other areas of their daily life. How exactly is this technology reinventing the college lecture scene? 

Take a look at a few of these top ways students are using edtech to improve their education.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, March 26, 5:13 PM

Too many college faculty are STILL standing in the front of the room yammering about stuff. Sure, some students are listening but most are hoping it will be over soon and wondering what bits are going to be on the test and how quickly the prof, or the TA/GA, will upload the notes or PPT. Now that last part? That is integrating technology for some faculty. They still stand at the front of the room and lecture, but they also upload lecture notes and a PPT and call it a day. Then those same faculty complain that students don't like their class or aren't learning anything. I challenge some of those university faculty to imagine sitting in their classrooms themselves. Would they find themselves riveting? Intellectually challenging? Interesting? But I mostly challenge college faculty to be brave enough to rethink the way they teach and the way they expect students to learn. Kids are arriving at universities having been exposed to flipped and blended learning, to lots of technology integration, and find themselves transported to the mid-20th century. The time to start changing is now. Right now. With apologies to Home Depot: you can do it, I can help.

The Wild and Amazing World of Augmented Reality

The Wild and Amazing World of Augmented Reality | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
While AR isn’t difficult or expensive to use (especially when compared to 3D Printing or Maker Spaces), it does require forethought and planning. You’ll need a smartphone or tablet with a back facing camera, an augmented reality app (many free), a trigger image (you create yourself, probably for free), and an Internet connection. Then, scan the trigger image with a mobile device app and see what happens!

Susan's curator insight, March 28, 3:59 AM
Although AR isn't one of my favorite uses of technology in the classroom, I do think that it can be educational if used on occasion or as a one-off activity. Kids will certainly be amazed at what they see and you can build on that initial engagement to create real authentic tasks.

No, you aren't a 'visual' learner | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The idea that people have different styles of learning — that the visually inclined do best by seeing new information, for example, or others by hearing it — has been around since the 1950s, and recent research suggests it's still widely believed by teachers and laypeople alike. But is there scientific evidence that learning styles exist?

Gen Z are the first generation to have had access to digital technology from the outset of their lives.  It makes sense that they turn to technology first then for all aspects of their lives.

The challenge is making sure the coaches and mentors are providing the support these young people need.

Are they rushing to grow up, by-passing a more formal type of education, and spending time with their peers?

Although we need disruption in the current education system, these ideas are possibly too disruptive to be implemented en masse.

When an Email Exchange Turns Ugly

Get out from behind the screen and have a conversation.


It was Monday morning, and Lee opened his inbox to find an email from his manager: “Lee, I’ve decided to have Carlos present to the governing board, instead of you. I’m sure you’re good with this.” 


 Lee had spent the entire weekend preparing for the presentation. Not only did he know the numbers inside and out, he was also excited to get some face time with the board. Performing well would be a good move for his career. So, no, Lee wasn’t really “good with this.” He was crushed, defeated, and felt betrayed. But could he really say that in an email? And if he did, would anything change?

Critics of laptops in schools aren’t prepared for the future of technology.  


Imagine a classroom in the not-too-distant future. Textbooks, slideshows, and notes all interface neatly with devices that once called “phones” and “laptops”—but now those learning materials proliferate through desks, walls, clothes, jewelry, glasses, and maybe even tattooes or contact lenses. The teacher, trained to teach in the 2010s, wants to say, “close your laptops and put away your phones.” But when the phone is embedded in a fingernail, what can a teacher do?
