The myth that "students are comfortable with technology" is prevalent and pro... - 0 views

  •  
    "students have to (first) be comfortable with the technology, (second) they have to understand the educational use of the technology, and (third) they have to adjust to new instructional methods that use technology. Expecting that they will quickly and easily make the transition to blended learning is a recipe for failure."

Technology and jobs: Coming to an office near you - 0 views

  •  
    "The definition of "a state education" may also change. Far more money should be spent on pre-schooling, since the cognitive abilities and social skills that children learn in their first few years define much of their future potential. And adults will need continuous education. State education may well involve a year of study to be taken later in life, perhaps in stages."

Technology is the Answer: What was the Question? -: UNESCO Education - 0 views

  •  
    "Today ordinary people and their governments have many concerns about education. They boil down to three key issues. The first is access, the second is quality and the third is cost. I think of the tensions between these vectors as the eternal triangle of education. Let me say a word about each."

Academic freedom includes the freedom to say, "No." - 0 views

  •  
    "I've called educational technology issues the "academic freedom crisis of the twenty-first century" because I think how faculty present information to students is just as important as what information they present. If administrators force us to use tools that prevent faculty from teaching what we want to teach as well as we can teach it, they don't need to tell us what to teach in order to prevent us from getting our message out. If those tools can be used to replace faculty entirely, then even our content choices will become irrelevant because we won't have anyone around to hear our message. So what bothers me most about this message is its very limited definition of what academic freedom is."

If you don't want to bore your students … don't be boring! : ) - 0 views

  •  
    "I think there is a HUGE disconnect with how things in higher education have always been, and how they need to change today to be relevant. Students don't want to be entertained, they want to be engaged… They need to experience flow. They need to be perplexed."

Debate continues over benefits of technology-oriented education - 0 views

  •  
    Educational technology professor Mathieu Plourde said screen time should be supervised, not banned, in the household. The fact that technology is so present in the world today will put kids who do not know how to use certain devices at a disadvantage and despite beliefs about the harmful effects of screen time, not informing children on how to use these technologies may be more detrimental, he said.
