Transcript of "Connecting the dots: Technogogy and the AHA! moment"

  1. 1. Connecting the Dots:Technogogy and the AHA! moment<br />Vance Stevens<br />TESOL Arabia Ed Tech SIG<br />Ras Al Khaimah, Apr. 16, 2011<br />
  2. 2. Technogogy<br />Nik Peachey http://www.technogogy.org.uk/<br />Zaid Ali Alsagoffdefines technogogy as "the convergence of technology, pedagogy and content in the transformative use of technology to foster learning," http://elearningmalaysia.blogspot.com/2008/01/technogogy-convergence-of-content.html<br />Vance Stevens, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, Apr.16, 2011<br />
  3. 3. Elucidating the Ineffable<br />It's because computers are anything but isolating, because they bring people together in innumerable modalities, that they are transformative in learning.  Yet …this is not widely accepted as fact due to the ineffable nature of the process.  Technogogy has to be experienced to be understood, and many simply do not grant themselves the opportunity to experience it; therefore they never achieve that aha! moment.<br />From http://advanceducation.blogspot.com/2011/03/transforming-learning-with-creative.html<br />Vance Stevens, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, Apr.16, 2011<br />
