technology is bad for our brain and it can make us really tired a lot
Technology does not replace the traditional physical teacher. It simply supports and accelerates learning. Great support resources
we already know this , that's why trashtalk.
Jason, I am an older teacher and I do agree so much with what you say. And yes, creative openminded teachers are willing to let students use technology being aware of its limitations and understanding its educational potential. Unless something unexpectable happens, technology will continue to develop quickly and we need to prepare our children to live in this ever developing environment. We must teach them to use technology wisely and always with intention to make the world better. And we both know, that for that we do not need to pour iPads etc. in classrooms…Good job!
Let me just get this straight, devices save trees? Well, ignoring that we have built an age-old industry around cultivating specific types of trees for paper making, that might be true. We grow them like we breed cattle. We don't go off to the Amazon and make paper from a 2000-year-old forest tree (that's a totally different topic). We employ people to plant them, maintain them, chop them down and make paper. These jobs will just disappear. So, in truth, devices steal livelihoods may be a more accurate view. Hey, but we are not allowed to say that.
Amazing speech on a very important topic
Really impressed by this.
hmm.. technology saves trees but pollutes in other ways… trees can be re-planted.. energy used making, throwing away.. re-making because things are obsolete so quickly etc.. but good talk

Technology accelerates learning 7X faster than the speed of the traditional classroom educator.
Where did you get your data from?
Hi fellow teachers. I am looking to have three teachers answer these questions. Any takers?
Teacher Interview Questions:
How much of a priority is it for you to teach your students how to use the technology that you integrate into your class lessons?
What are your main sources for discovering the latest in educational technologies?
What have you found to be the best ways to assess the effectiveness of an integrated educational technology?
On a scale of 1-10, how effective do you believe your school is in the area of teaching digital literacy? What steps would you suggest for your school that may increase your school a few points on the scale?
How do the teachers and administrators who take the lead in the use of technology in the classrooms share their experiences, ideas, and knowledge with other teachers?
What has been the most effective piece of technology that you currently use to create authentic learning experiences for your students?
How have recent education technologies been integrated into your assessments?
How has edu. technologies made a difference in the differentiation of your instruction, content, and assessments for various learners?
How have you noticed students using available technology to support their learning process?
So many things wrong with that talk. Almost dangerously naive. Technology does not make good teaching, good teachers do. This pushes the bad and potentially destructive idea that what schools need are just more iPads! Somehow by giving teachers or students technology (whatever that is) will help miraculously make kids feel engaged and learn. Someone beamed into the classroom via Skype, though no doubt momentarily engaging and distracting for kids, does not make it a learning experience – hey rather than the teacher lecturing, why don't we get someone else. Plus whenever someone is comparing technology to classroom teaching we constantly hear the old cliche that "rather than listening to a boring lecture, wouldn't your kids prefer to play an educational game?". This is insulting to teachers, making the massive assumption that all teaching is lecturing and thus boring and of a poor quality (lecturing can be effective and has its place in some learning contexts), plus sets up the dangerous idea that teachers are somehow ill-prepared and ineffective, so we need to replace or enhance their lack of skills with technology. This comparison is just wrong, and if half-way true, begs for better training and support for teachers, NOT more expensive technology! This money should be used on training and supporting teachers, who then based on their professional ability and the needs of their students, decide what, when, why and how to use technology. NOT imposed on them by others who are less professional able to understand the realities of the teachers' context. It plays into the idea of de-professionalising teachers and cutting costs when the exact opposite is needed.
This is not to say that technology can't be an amazing enabler of learning, but so can a simple walk around the streets of their town, a leaf picked up from the street, or pen and paper. What makes them so, is the teacher and the pedagogy they bring to objects and people. Please folks let us not get carried away, tech companies and their fans would love to sell us this idea that all educational ills can be solved by technology, but alas it can't and won't. Plus the ridiculous idea that iPads will save paper, is dangerously naive, especially as we are digging up vast amounts of the earth to get the metals, destabilising regions in the process, and then subsequently causing vast landfills when in a few years they become obsolete, not to mention the billions wasted on buy potentially unnecessary technology.
As I mentioned before, I'm not saying technology isn't an amazing tool, just not quite as simple as Jason points out. Though hats off to him for such a great and impassioned plea, and clearly a student who would make his teacher proud, and a Norfolk boy!
Impressed…I'm a fan
