Pay Attention

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

I feel this video captures a portion of how I see technology impacting the classroom and the new style of learning emerging as technology becomes interwoven with our classrooms. Students have so much more access to the world around them and our encouragement and guidence is still needed to help them understand and interpret their place within the knowledge in order to help them be successful throughout life. However, are we catering to the students too much by using technology as attention maintainence tools? Is this approach akin to using video games as a baby sitter? Could students lose some of the fundamental skills if too much technology is used? Thoughts?
