Transcript of "The Education Technology Defense"

  1. 1. Defense of Education Technology in the Classroom <br />DJ Marshall, MSN, RN<br />Palm Beach Community College<br />EME 5054<br />1<br />
  2. 2. The Arguments Against Education Technology in the Classroom<br />The addition of Technology in the classroom has not been researched properly.<br />Education Technology has had “No Significant Difference” to learning.<br />Technology in the classroom is not what was promised.<br />2<br />
  3. 3. The Criticism: The Addition of Technology has not been researched. <br />E-learning has not transformed how professors teach. Faculties still teach as they were taught: “the sage on the stage instead of being the guide on the side.”<br />3<br />
  4. 4. The Criticism: The Addition of Technology has not been researched. <br />Technology mediated activities replace the interactions between students and instructors, and this can put distance learners at a disadvantage.<br />There is not compelling evidence that computers help children learn how to read. Books should come first.<br />4<br />
  5. 5. The Criticism: The Addition of Technology has not been researched. <br />There is a lack of outcome evidence in special education.<br />5<br />
  6. 6. The Criticism: The Addition of Technology has not been researched. <br />Perception and satisfaction should not be the research focus in special education. <br />6<br />
  7. 7. The Criticism: Education Technology has had “No Significant Difference”.<br />Studies are more anecdotal than conclusive. <br />7<br />
  8. 8. The Criticism: Education Technology has had “No Significant Difference”.<br />Learning by the students has not been increased.<br />8<br />
  9. 9. The Criticism: Education Technology has had “No Significant Difference”.<br />Schools have used computers rather than known, acceptable ways to improve learning. <br />9<br />
  10. 10. The Criticism: Education Technology has had “No Significant Difference”.<br />The effects of the computers on the brain are unknown.<br />10<br />
  11. 11. The Criticism: Education Technology has had “No Significant Difference”.<br />Computers send the wrong message. <br />11<br />
  12. 12. The Criticism: Education Technology has had “No Significant Difference”.<br />Computers give a student tunnel vision. <br />12<br />
  13. 13. The Criticism: Technology in the classroom is not what was promised. <br />Adjunct faculty are less expensive than full time faculty.<br />13<br />
  14. 14. The Criticism: Technology in the classroom is not what was promised. <br />Faculty will be concerned about their salary. <br />14<br />
  15. 15. The Criticism: Technology in the classroom is not what was promised. <br />Tuition costs will increase.<br />With increasing numbers of online courses, the IT department would have shunt monies away from other salaries, and increase their power.<br />15<br />
  16. 16. The Criticism: Technology in the classroom is not what was promised. <br />Classroom computers can usurp the teacher’s teaching time.<br />16<br />
  17. 17. The Criticism: Technology in the classroom is not what was promised. <br />Businesses can gain too much influence over the curriculum creating a weakness in problem solving .<br />17<br />
  18. 18. The Criticism: Technology in the classroom is not what was promised. <br />Internet beginners are at risk.<br />18<br />
  19. 19. The Criticism: Technology in the classroom is not what was promised. <br />E-learning has not produced the numbers that were expected.<br />19<br />
  20. 20. The Criticism: Technology in the classroom is not what was promised. <br />Students prefer technology based entertainment and social contact.<br />20<br />
  21. 21. The Criticism: Technology in the classroom is not what was promised. <br />Millions of dollars are being spent to bring “cutting edge” programs to a small number of students, and this technology will be obsolete in 18 months.<br />Educators are not savvy consumers of technology, but educators and schools want the latest technology. <br />21<br />
  22. 22. The Criticism: Technology in the classroom is not what was promised. <br />Educators are attracted to large cost programs that can be purchased at the store for a fraction of the package price.<br />There is little evidence to support that computer-assisted instruction is cost effective.<br />22<br />
  23. 23. Conclusions<br />Move forward<br />Determine the purpose and need for technology<br />Determine goals before acquiring technology<br />Technology in the classroom is a supplement to education, not the replacement for education<br />23<br />
  24. 24. Conclusions<br />Faculty must adjust their face to face courses<br />Research needs to be carefully designed<br />Research needs to report actual trends<br />Teaching practice needs to adjust to evidence found in research<br />24<br />
