The Unintended Consequences of Innovation - EdTech Researcher - Education Week - 2 views

  •  
    "Over the past several weeks, three headlines pertaining to education have dominated my social media news feeds: screen time, fake news/media literacy, and the ethical dilemmas associated with advances in technology. When considered together, these three topics represent the unintended consequences of innovation.

    The inventors of television, computers, mobile devices, and social media did not intend to unleash a slew of negative consequences for children. They did not consider the potential for shortened attention spans, lack of connection to nature, or a rising obesity rate; nor did they conceive of their tools as weapons for deploying fake news, unleashing bullying, or fueling hate groups. The Mark Zuckerberg/Biz Stone/Sergey Brin/Steve Jobs/Bill Gates of the world intended to build community, increase access to a global library of information, and provide every individual with a voice."

10 ways to reach SAMR's redefinition level | Ditch That Textbook - 5 views

  •  
    "SAMR is a technology integration model that basically shows the way to get the most out of your technology in the classroom. The dotted line in the chart to the right shows where you cross over from doing what you've always done - just adding technology - to doing what you couldn't do before.

    Redefinition is at the top of the SAMR model, but that doesn't mean that you "win" or that you're doing it right only if you reach redefinition. Some tasks just aren't made for redefinition, and great learning can happen without redefinition.

    But redefinition is the Holy Grail. If you get there, you're providing learning that couldn't have happened a decade ago (maybe a year ago)."

Robots in Education: What's Here and What's Coming | Edudemic - 2 views

  •  
    "Decades before the computer revolution began to spread in earnest, science fiction's most creative minds sketched out a future most of us never thought we'd see. And yet between self-driving cars and yes, even hoverboards, that future seems closer than ever.

    Nowhere is this more of a reality than in the field of robotics. Sure, we may not each have our own robotic besties/slaves as the old sci fi shows predicted we'd have by now, but judging by the many creative ways robotics are used in so many classrooms today, well…We're pretty close. Let's take a look at some of the neatest and most inspiring ways Robot Education (RoboEd?) is unfolding today"
