Myths and Opportunities: Technology in the Classroom

July 6, 2009

This is an interesting video from Alan November.  Several staff and I were fortunate to hear him speak this past year at the MACUL Conference in Detroit.  He brings an interesting perspective, focused on student centered learning that embraces technology.  One of the aspects I like about his perspective is that he acknowledges that simply using technology in education is not going to improve results – we need to think critically about how we use it.  The video is about 13 minutes long – please post your thoughts in the comment section.

    Just watched the video…thought it was amazing. It brings to thought so many opportunities that I never had thought of before. For instance, I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to travel a lot and converse with educators around the world. But my students may not all have those opportunities. Using the web’s social networking capabilities, they can link up with students around the world, asking questions and sharing ideas about relevant information…genius!
