  • 1. Response to criticisms
    EME 5054 FOUNDATIONS OF ED TECH
    REBECCA PLEASANT
  • 2. The seven basic criticisms:
    Teachers are not given the training, time and incentives to utilize technology effectively in the classroom.
    Computers cannot replace the social interactions necessary for healthy child development.
    Computers cannot replace the three dimensional interactions and sensations that are required for healthy child development.
    Computers do not offer real life problem solving, critical thinking and creativity skills necessary in life and work.
    Putting a quality face-to-face class curriculum on-line doesn’t necessarily create a quality on-line class.
    ‘No good evidence exists that most uses of computers significantly improve teaching and learning, yet school districts are cutting programs – music, art, physical education – that enrich children’s lives to make room for this dubious nostrum. Ironically, a half-dozen preliminary studies recently suggested that music and art classes may build the physical size of a child’s brain’.
    Many of the studies surrounding educational technology lack the necessary scientific controls and validity.
