Transcript

  • 1. Technology in Education Myths New ways for doing the same old thing
  • 2. Myth #1 Using technology involves the student in the learning process. Students using technology become active participants in the learning process instead of passive listeners .
  • 3. Technology doesn’t do this. Good teaching does this. Technology often makes this easier to do and leverages student interests but ask anyone who’s had to sit through a two hour Powerpoint if the technology engaged them in the learning process.
  • 4.
    • Myth #2
    • Using technology eliminates most discipline problems. When the student is involved in the work, there is little time for trouble.
  • 5.
    • Technology does nothing to eliminate discipline problems. Technology does, once again, help you design engaging lessons which can decrease discipline problems but not because of technology.
  • 6.
    • Myth #3
    • Using technology allows students to take ownership of the project.
  • 7.
    • A well designed lesson gives students ownership. It’s not about the technology, it’s about the ownership.
  • 8.
    • Myth #4
    • Using technology transforms the teacher from authority expert to facilitator. The teacher becomes more of a participant when the students use technology to find answers online.
  • 9.
    • No, but c hanging your teaching style to take advantages of the increased access the web gives you might transform a teacher but it’s a change in mindset not in technology usage
  • 10.
    • Myth #5
    • Technology use is part of the normal learning process for students; it is in their “comfort zone.”
  • 11.
    • True, but do teachers keep up?
  • 12.
    • Myth #6
    • Using technology reduces the workload on the teacher.
  • 13.
    • Great for collaboration, preparing for next year, chores like grading, data
  • 14.
    • Myth #7
    • Technology is used everywhere - in math, science, engineering, transportation, manufacturing, and every business application you can think of.
  • 15.
    • I agree with this with the caveat that technology is used in relevant and real world ways. That’s certainly not always the case in schools.
  • 16.
    • Myth #8
    • Using technology allows for the free exchange of information.
  • 17.
    • Very true…but schools usually block this
  • 18.
    • All ideas from www.bionicteaching.com
