    Great inspiration! +Raj Dhingra thank you!!

  • Sunhong Hwang says:

    Corporate reformer’s typical presentation with three stories. It can be
    compared with David Kirp’s recent article.

    Catching up too…..

    The mantra which I’ve been repeating “its not about the devices, but the
    learning” is now gathering momentum as I delve into this course looking not
    at the technology which is changing how our students learn but what
    technology they can develop as part of their learning. Being introduced to
    the Technologies Leaning Area in the Aus. Curr. was exciting and
    challenging to say the least.
    This video also provides new horizons and worth watching. the shortest
    distance between two points is no longer a straight line but the same place
    when the points are touching……who’d have thought?#cserTask1

    Antagonist: Not all families are going to have access to technology so they
    shouldn’t use it for homework. If they aren’t using it for homework, they
    should not use it in the classroom. It won’t be helpful when they want to
    go home and play on technology if some don’t have access to any. Might I
    also add that teachers must be trained how to use this technology to teach
    their students which takes up a lot of time to keep their computer skills
    up to par which takes away from them being able to learn about their
    subject areas that they need to focus on. Another point is that equipping a
    classroom with technology is very costly. All of the classrooms would need
    it if it is used in one classroom. Supplying everyone with it is a lot of
    money down the drain. They need to be maintained and upgraded with software
    also. There is a lot that goes into computers, not just using it as a

  • Nicole Salerno says:

    Antagonist: Teaching a math lesson and using technology to help the teacher
    might make it more complicated for the student. They might be too focused
    on the technology rather than the material being taught. They might focus
    on how the teacher is operating the SmartBoard or something else. Teachers
    can also be overusing the technology. It should not be used as the main
    source of teaching. Also, students today think of technology as playing
    games, and not a source for learning. They would have to be taught other
    reasons for using it before the teacher implements them in the class.

  • Jillian Hochuli says:

    Advocate: While I agree that there should be consequences in place, I do
    not think that I could place a value on this at the moment. I think that a
    teacher with a good behavior management plan and good classroom management
    skills is not going to have a problem with her students and misusing
    technology. The behavior management plan that is set in place will include
    consequences for misusing technology, such as limited recess time, written
    work while other peers are using computers, or having to work individually
    instead of in groups. I understand that schools did not use technology for
    hundreds of years, but I feel like it is a inevitable thing. Students are
    using technology at younger ages every generation, and by not using
    technology in the classroom, you are limiting your resources for being a
    successful teacher.

  • Alicia Papa says:

    Interrogator- I agree with Nicole. I think that technology can be a huge
    distraction to students in the classroom, if not taught to use it the right
    way. Teachers need to either disable the game/ internet features or teach
    students that when it is time to do school work using technology it is not
    a time for games. As a sub I have experience with teachers leaving students
    time to work on computers for projects and when I walk around they aren’t
    working on their projects they are playing games and taking taking
    advantage of both me and the technology.

  • Ricardo Cetz says:

    I believe that technology can enhance the learning experience in an
    integrative way. I believe that understanding the principles behind
    technology and how we apply those in the classroom setting can help
    students learn.

  • Nicole Salerno says:

    Antagonist: The students might not follow this behavior management plan
    when it involves technology. They want to be able to do what they do at
    home on their iPads and computers, inside their classrooms. I agree with
    Alicia that back then, we did not use technology and students did well.
    Even if it is limiting the resources available for the teacher, they can
    still teach the traditional way and succeed. They don’t need to use
    technology to help them. That is why we go to school, to learn about how to
    teach our young students; not to teach them about technology or how to use

  • Best Online Universities LLC says:

    Excellent TED Talk. Can Technology Change Education? Yes!

  • James Van Dyke says:

    I like the comment on using technology to make learning student centric. I
    have been preaching participant centered learning for some time to my
    colleagues. Using technology to do this has great potential if done

  • Jillian Hochuli says:

    Advocate: While a SmartBoard is not something that students will have at
    home, there are plenty of teachers that give homework on the internet. In
    fact, in my field placement this semester, my students have nightly math
    homework that is found on a website. Again, it is about balancing the
    amount of teaching while integrating technology and the amount of teaching
    that is done without technology. I do not believe that one period during
    the day that is spent using technology will be detrimental for students who
    will need to know how to use various forms of technology as they get older.
    And it is sometimes better that a student cannot take the technology home,
    because then they won’t become reliant on it.

    Cool exampel from Turkey! 

  • TechYeslogy says:

    Self-paced learning is the best part of tech. Excellent speech. 

  • Alicia Papa says:

    Antagonist – Blending technology and classrooms isn’t always a great idea.
    Sometimes these children do no know how to use the technology or they take
    advantage of the technology and do what they want to do on the devices. For
    example, there was a boy last year in preschool that used an iPad to
    communicate. However, when he got mad or upset he threw it and the speech
    therapist had to reprogram his apps all over again. If child are not ready
    to use the technology or are not taught how to use it correctly then it
    shouldn’t be in the classroom. 

  • Peter Fogarty says:

    What is the name of the website he mentions at the end?

  • Jillian Hochuli says:

    Advocate: It is a matter of successfully integrating technology into the
    schedule of the day. It would not many any sense to use technology when
    independent reading is scheduled, but if a teacher can plan a math lesson
    while using the SmartBoard, she is integrating it successfully. It is also
    a matter of preparation and flexibility. I do not advocate teaching an
    impromptu lesson using technology because this can cause problems and an
    unsuccessful lesson. However, preparing a lesson and testing out the
    technology prior to the lesson could be successful.

  • Nicole Salerno says:

    Antagonist: I feel that the world is using so much technology that students
    need to learn not to be so reliant on it. I am so reliant on my phone
    looking at Instagram and Twitter, but that’s not the point. Students need
    to learn that there are other ways of finding out information and being
    successful without the use of technology. I understand that they need to
    prepare for the real world, but truly, I think that they need to learn not
    to become dependent on using it. I agree with Alicia that a lot of time of
    the school day is going to be put to the teaching of technology which
    wastes a lot of learning on more important subjects.

  • Leslie Lang says:

    Technology is a tool. However, this tool distribution throughout the
    school is determined by Administrators, Principals, & Department
    Chairs…….meaning that AP, Pre-AP, Advanced classes get everything they
    want while Reg Ed, Special Ed, and ESOL students get nothing because they
    are viewed as not on the college track. I got nothing from the school. I
    don’t even get textbooks or supplies. I purchased whatever technology I do
    have that according to the speaker is still making me the “sage on the
    stage”. I can’t afford to buy classroom sets of iPADs or other types of
    technologies. I can’t even get certain types of technology for the Special
    Ed students. No one cares.

  • Jillian Hochuli says:

    Advocate: Behavior plans are put in place for a reason, and if students are
    not following it, then the teacher needs to evaluate the behavior
    management plan as a whole. And behavior management is not a choice for
    students. The plan is either followed or there are consequences. I agree
    that teachers are able to be successful and teach without technology, I
    just believe that it would be a wasted resource. With the way that things
    are going, students are being thrust into a world FULL of technology. It is
    teachers’ jobs to help students prepare for the real world. Teachers would
    not be doing their jobs if they did not teach students that the world is
    changing, and technology is becoming more and more apart of that world.
    Blended learning is a great solution to this, but there has to be a happy
    balance between the two, in order to help students succeed as well as
    prepare them for the real world.
