Why Some Teachers Are Against Technology In Education

Why Some Teachers Are Against Technology In Education | Corridor of learning | Scoop.it

Some educators are upset. 

Recently I’ve noticed an increasing number of ed folks enthusiastically question education technology—and do so with enough sarcasm and bitterness and choice language to embarrass their mothers. If you’re not making some people angry, you’re probably not trying hard enough, but being “for” or “against” technology is a crude sentiment.

According to the official blog of the U.S. Department of Education, “Every day should be Digital Learning Day.”  We agree. Everyone should have the opportunity to learn wherever and whenever they want. And digital devices and media are helping to make that possible for many people around the world.

A Must See Interactive Graphic on Teaching Students about Copyright ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must See Interactive Graphic on Teaching Students about Copyright ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Corridor of learning | Scoop.it

Copyright is such an important issue that every student in your class should at least have an idea about what it is and how to handle it. The increasing use of digital media and web 2.0 technologies have blurred the lines between what is and what is not acceptable to be re-used. The majority of students still think that anything online is ok to download, copy or re-use. To test your students on this, assign them a multimedia project in which they have to use pictures and other digital resources and see what they will bring you. It does take some explicit instruction for them to grasp the whole concept of copyright. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has a wide variety of resources to help you teach your students about copyright and fair use.
