Great discussion in class today with regards to the Technology Skeptics views on the use of technology in today's classroom, not to forget tomorrow's classroom as well. As educators we all want to teach in a school where the latest and greatest tech tools are in place and readily embraced. But not all schools and classrooms are created nor maintained in the same way, and there is a genuine lag in the ways which communities are rushing to (and sometimes away) from technology. Today's discussion will extend into schools in the months and years to come, and we all need to participate on both sides of the argument for the sake of enhancing our understanding of potential outcomes.
As a side note, I was always told that it was next to impossible to walk and chew gum at the same time. EDUC 331 is much the same....nearly impossible to listen ATTENTIVELY and make mental/typed notes at the same time. So much information to ponder in so little time. Never fear!
