This is the time between times for educators working with technology. Before mobile, ubiquitous and everyware computing become the invisible norm, but after a time when educators could sit back and wait for the digital revolution to pass on by. As slow as some in education have been to respond to rapid technological change, this is however the most exciting and dynamic time to be an educator of the educators because ...

  15. 15. But Education has not kept up with the digital revolution... “The biggest question about technology and schools in the 21st century is not so much ‘What can it do?’ but, rather, ‘When will it get to do it?’” (Marc Prensky, 2008).
  16. 16. The US commerce department ranked 55 industry sectors by their level of IT - intensiveness. Education came last, after coal mining. Dumagan, Gill, Ingram, 2003 Education cannot keep up with the pace of change in technology. For the first time in Western history most end-users probably have better leisure access to technology (through mobile phones, game devices & computers etc.) than in many of the institutions we work & learn. Stuart Smith 2009

  20. 20. RESPONSES: Dr Tony Karrer, USA CEO/CTO of TechEmpower, a software, web & eLearning development firm http://elearningtech.blogspot.com “Educators today are in the midst of one of the most interesting transformations where individual knowledge becomes devalued, but the ability to teach new metacognitive tools and methods is more important than ever.”
  21. 21. RESPONSES: Professor Stephen Heppell, U.K. Founder, Ultralab and Think.com, Educational Futures consultant www.heppell.net “We have moved from the flat start of technological progression's exponential curve to the steep part ... All the old certainties of a last century world of factory schools with formulaic rigours of "met before" learning have palpably failed to meet the needs of a world full of surprises and the unexpected. It's the death of factory education and the dawn of learning.”.
  22. 22. RESPONSES: George Siemens, Canada. Founder of ‘Connectivism’, Associate Director with the Learning Technologies Centre (University of Manitoba) www.elearnspace.org “I believe that we are seeing, in educational t e c h n o l o g y, a r a r e c o n v e r g e n c e o f technological transformation and ideological development. The future of education will be shaped by those who are able to anticipate & understand the impact of the dual forces of social learning & participative technology”.
  23. 23. RESPONSES: Shane Roberts, Gold Coast, Australia. Secondary HPE teacher, and Advanced Pedagogical Licence holder http://shanetechteach.edublogs.org “This could be a time considered for preparation for anywhere, anytime learning ... Change is an exciting process, for me in par ticular as it means trial and experimentation are welcomed. Less effective or productive practices can be discovered, trialled and reported on without fear of being labeled incompetent – as long as learning is achieved and demonstrated.”
  24. 24. A clue to the missing #1 term...
  25. 25. RESPONSES: Tony Vincent, USA. Former teacher, now trainer and mLearning education consultant www.learninginhand.com “What I love even more than teaching is learning. And in the changing digital and social landscape, I get to learn constantly and reinforce my learning by sharing it with others.”
  26. 26. RESPONSES: Emma Heffernan, Australia Manager Discovery Programs, eLearning Branch, Education Queensland “Technology is a great democratiser of education. It  is no longer expected that educators hold the knowledge to impar t to their learners ... For the first time in history students and teachers are consciously playing the same role; we are all learners.
  27. 27. RESPONSES: Toni Twiss, NZ Former teacher, now a director of eLearning for secondary schools and lecturer at Waikato University http://tonitwiss.com “We have to rekindle our passion for learning. As teachers it is a time to remember what it feels like to be a learner ...  We are put in the shoes of the very students we teach as we explore and exper iment with the potential of new technologies, and perhaps most importantly, reconstruct and refresh understanding of our own pedagogy and practice rather than just doing what we have always done”.
  28. 28. And the winner is - LEARNING. This was far and away the main thing that excited our educators about being a teacher right now - Learning is being returned to the centre of education.
