Education: Technology — Academic Godsend or Demon?  Annotated

 

"At age 55, Professor Nazemi stands on the far shore of a new sort of generational divide between teacher and student. This one separates those who want to use technology to grow smarter from those who want to use it to get dumber."

       

  • I follow Fast Company’s Twitter feed, and tonight I followed a link to a blog post entitled Education: Technology — Academic Godsend or Demon which gives a good, brief description of the dilemma faced by most ed tech professionals: What makes the use of technology compelling? Why engage in something that can be done just as well in a low tech way? I think I’ll refer to this post in my preso next weekend in Palm Springs. I particularly like this quote, "At age 55, Professor Nazemi stands on the far shore of a new sort of
        generational divide between teacher and student. This one separates
        those who want to use technology to grow smarter from those who want to
        use it to get dumber."
       
        Incidentally, I highlighted this quote and wrote annotations to myself using Diigo. I am now posting these annotations directly to my blog! I think I am going to like this tool.
