  • There is a sea of instructional technology available to us. What do we decide to use. What do we want to commit precious time to developing new materials. Some of the answers to these questions depend upon who are students are? What do they bring to the table as they pursue their educations. Story about the EDEN Conference two weeks ago. The president of one of our fine American distance learning colleges was part of a plenary panel. Her talk was a well-done but standard stump speech we hear these days about globalization, world economic development, digital natives, technology infusion and finished with a call for transforming education at all levels by making greater use of online learning technologies. The speaker who followed her was a Frenchman, Pietro Sicuro , Head of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, France La culture numérique… chemin de traverse ou voie royale vers l'éducation pour tous tout au long de la vie? and leader of a major education consortium in France . We had to put on our headsets so we could hear his talk translated into English. As part of his introduction, he asked but “ What about the books?” “ What about Values?” “ What about an Education”? Education is not simply about knowledge/information exchanges?

Students meet f2f – teacher uses technology in class such as interactive simulations, digitally controlled experiments Students meet online - teacher uses simple technology such as CMS, electronic bulletin boards. Students meet online – teacher uses more advanced technology such as interactive videoconferencing or MUVE. Source: Picciano, A.G. (2007). Chapter 1 in Picciano, A.G. & & Dzuiban, C. (Eds.)

Closing Comment - The Cognitive Age We live in an age when we can transmit gigabytes of information tens of thousands of miles at nanosecond speeds……but the most important part of information’s journey is the last few inches — the space between a person’s eyes or ears and the various regions of the brain… ----David Brooks, NY Times, May 2, 2008
