A Must Have Chart on The Characteristics of Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must Have Chart on The Characteristics of Education 3.0 ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

I just came across this excellent chart featuring the characteristics of education in different web stages and thought you might want to have a look. I am not sure who created this chart but I found it through my colleague  Terry, however, the content is really great and speaks for itself.


 From Web1.0 to Web3.0 education has been radically transformed under the influence of the technology used in each era.When Tim OReilly first coined the term web2.0 it was meant to replace the static electronic attributes of the web in the 1990s. Web 2.0 or what some prefer to label as the " social web " was behind the information revolution that marked the beginning of this century.

 

Users are no longer mere consumers of online content but are also creators and publishers of their own content. This relationship between digital content and end-user has taken on new dimensions with the introduction of web3.0. Check out the chart below to learn more about the characteristics of education in each period. Enjoy

Alycia's insight:

This website contains a chart that divides education into three different web stages it explains impacts of teaching using both traditional and technological methods would have on society, teachers, and students. This is a good visual for trying to persuade all schools and educational faculty to switch over to technology based teaching and learning. It also gives viewers an idea of how much technology has impacted and transformed education over the years.

Technology Over Traditional Pencil and Paper!

http://nutmegeducation.com/2013/07/29/7-ways-to-get-funding-and-grants-for-technology-in-your-classroom/

This picture caught my attention because,  it is saying that teachers and/or students prefer technological teaching/learning methods rather than traditional pencil and paper mechanisms. Since, the Ipad is on top of everything, it seems to be the individual's first choice. It goes with Technology in Education because, that is one of the main sources of electronics that many schools utilize to teach their curriculum.

Alycia's insight:

Uibu, Krista, and Eve Kikas. "The Roles Of A Primary School Teacher In The Information Society." Scandinavian Journal Of Educational Research 52.5 (2008): 459-480. Academic Search Premier. Web. 13 Nov. 2014.

This is a scholarly journal piece which came from the Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research. The journal touch bases on a qualitative study that was conducted in Estonia. The study was conducted to get insight on how teachers felt about the technology that has been coming into the classrooms. This journal goes well with the topic that I have chose because, it gives insight on how teachers feel about the affects that technology has on the ability to teach students. The study also shows how well and how difficult the teachers took onto the introduction of IT learning/teaching.

Rwanda: How Technology Has Improved Quality of Education in Rural Primary Schools | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
Portable smart devices are facilitating the improvement of teachers' skills and easing the transfer of knowledge to pupils in primary schools in rural areas.

I chose this article from allafrica.com because, I think that it is so neat that technology could help improve education in poor or rural countries such as, Rwanda and many others. This is one of the many positive affects of utilizing technology in education. It is well known that many countries in Africa are not capable of producing funds to buy all of the needed supplies to teach the students. By having one cell phone, tablet, computer, or laptop it can help educate hundreds of people over there. It is convenient and easy to maintain.

Tickle, Les. Design And Technology In Primary School Classrooms : Developing Teachers' Perspectives And Practices. London: Falmer, 1990. eBook Collection (EBSCOhost). Web. 13 Nov. 2014.

Design and Technology in Primary School Classrooms : Developing Teachers' Perspectives and Practices is an ebook which was produced in London in the year 1990. I chose this ebook because, it was written during the time where technology was just entering into the world. Students and teachers rarely had any experience with computer based technologies in the classroom. The book explains how schools around the world were used to traditional (oral) ways of teaching and were kind of skeptical about introducing technology to the classrooms. Until they started cooperating with one another to understand that technology and traditional teaching methods could be used to broaden teaching and learning horizons.

This blog explains that surveys show that students and millennial parents (ages 34 and younger) feel as if teachers are not well prepared to keep up with the new technological aspects of learning.  As, opposed to the older generation of parents who proved fifty seven percent satisfaction with the teachers ability to comply with technology. The president of Bovitz Inc. and the director of the Center of Digital Future exclaimed that younger parents feel this way because, they think that older teachers are not capable of utilizing new technology skills. They argue that it will not be sensible to replace all of the older teachers with younger ones  because the older generation(s) have skills that can be incorporated with modern day technology to successfully teach students.
