A student’s perspective on the promise of technology

A student’s perspective on the promise of technology | Higher Education | Scoop.it

"To be a young adult in 2018 means to have gone through school during a very revolutionary time, technologically speaking. Throughout the 2000s, classrooms in America saw everything from basic overhead projectors and boomboxes to state-of-the-art computer labs and virtual reality headsets. The implementation of technology in schools alters the fundamental teaching structure in ways that can render significant improvements in productivity. We should be careful to not allow these new methods to overpower traditional teaching techniques, but rather find ways to use technology to enhance the world of education, given its ability to stimulate the developing brain in ways that traditional education cannot."

Goodbye Resumes, Hello Digital Portfolios

Goodbye Resumes, Hello Digital Portfolios | Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Meet Generation DIY–the generation that is not satisfied with the status quo. If we see something that needs fixing, well…we fix it! Before the advent of the internet, DIYers were siloed away in their garages with no awareness of each other. Today’s GenDIY is completely opposite and more connected than ever.

 

Which leads me to the resume. GenDIY is hacking the traditional resume just as we’re hacking all other aspects of our lives. Gone are the days of the 8 ½ by 11 inch pieces of paper with tiny typeface. Today, we are creating digital identities that we can use for life."

What does that mean? I experienced writing up a professional development plan each year and for the last decade being told what I would do. It was about figuring out how to learn what I wanted based on my teaching and the students in front of me.
