This is a concern that we will always have when we press for more and more technology in Education especially in the form of I-Pads, Lap-tops, and internet connections. While no doubt, the intention might be to benefit the learners in the long run, the fact is that learners are smart enough to circumvent the safety measures that educationists are likely to place in the gadgets to prevent students from surfing internet sites which offer anything other than education based content. The question remains, how do we manage education based on Information Technology? If firewalls can be circumvented by enterprising young learners who are ready to open more and more "Pandora's Boxes', then what do we do? The fact of the matter is that students require constant adult supervision when they are working on their tablets and internet devices, the question is how effectively can one adult, a teacher supervise effectively thirty learners simultaneously working on the net for their projects without seeming to be breathing down their necks? The students in my school were given tablets for their D.A. test, and the moment they got the chance, they moved over to sites that were offering other things like music and free games, and this was observed not only in students of grade 8, but also science stream students sudying in grade 12. The question is, whether the use of unsupervised Information Technology is really worth the distractions it causes?

Interesting article though most of what it describes is already possible. Also not much mention of augmented reality, which I think will become increasingly important.

Mauricio Martinez's curator insight, February 10, 2014 8:47 AM

Some teachers still think of technology as "the future of classrooms", however, these innovations are already playing an important role in education. As the article says, "It's not about technology; it's about sharing knowledge and information, communicating efficiently, building learning communities and creating a culture of professionalism in schools.".
