Judith Shapiro calls for thinking about faculty roles and departments in new ways

Judith Shapiro calls for thinking about faculty roles and departments in new ways | Technology for College Profs | Scoop.it

Faculty members should also consider how undergraduate departmental majors can connect more organically with one another and with the wider curriculum of the institution. This interest is not served simply by creating new interdisciplinary programs, since too often these have simply resulted in a proliferation of departmentlike entities and have failed to create greater intellectual coherence in the undergraduate experience as a whole.

Millennials Not Ready for the Job Market

Millennials Not Ready for the Job Market | Technology for College Profs | Scoop.it

A new ETS study finds that Millennials, who will dominate the U.S. labor market for the next 50 years, may face another problem: They’re less prepared for today’s job market than many of their international peers, putting them (and the country) at a distinct disadvantage in an increasingly global economy.

Are Students Customers?

Are Students Customers? | Technology for College Profs | Scoop.it

Everything we know about where the higher education mission is headed today indicates that the notion of the student as a customer is becoming dominant in this trade-off and a big part of me is pained by the fact that, for example, the humanities and liberal arts are the losers, and with them, the pursuit of learning for its sake. But it seems impossible to head off this overwhelming demand for measurable value-added in the credential and the almost totally consumer-driven approach to postsecondary study, with its MOOCs, competency-based credit, the $10K BA, etc. Can we have it both ways?

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Technology for College Profs | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

"The first rule is so important, it’s RULE 0.… The new thing is never as good as the old thing, at least right now. Soon, the new thing will be better than the old thing will be." Seth Godwin

gosto da premissa que tecnologia não endereça/resolve necessidades emocionais, básicas na pirâmide aqui ilustrada.


A hierarquia tecnológica de segurança, sociabilização, cognição, estética, etc é um excelente passo a passo para utilização da tecnologia como ferramenta de aprendizagem.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 2, 2015 7:19 PM

This is a project which is ongoing. Maslow, like others i.e. Ellul, had reservations about computers, but his work is important in their uses.
