Digital technologies in the classroom? There is a new curriculum outside of school and that is the computer games curriculum (Professor James Paul Gee) Sims single mother game modding This disconnect between a student’s digital life and school matters because students learn better when they are engaged, and research about what engages them points to technology. Media-rich learning is an ideal way for teachers to connect with today’s pupils. Students should be makers rather than consumers. As educators we must become more than information experts; we must also be collaborators in learning; leveraging the power of students, seeking new knowledge alongside students Sunday, 1 November 2009

Our Students thoughts on using New technologies in the classroom Sunday, 1 November 2009

On average secondary The Problem schools photocopy in the classroom? 2,000,000 pages a year Pencil, paper, lecture, textbook, and test are still very often the norm. Is it any wonder that for digitally engaged students, school can become less engaging, less interesting and less relevant? In attempting to bring in new technologies to the classroom often expensive technology is sold to us to perform single tasks. Money is often wasted. Equipment goes out of date very quickly. The amount of time it takes to get from finding a useful piece of software, getting funds to pay for it through to getting it installed can be months. By the time it is installed it is out of date. Exponential growth, “The Excelleration of Technology : impact on education and society” Ray Kurzweill Sunday, 1 November 2009

Lets use them. Are we ready for the challenge? We do not know as much students! Are you intimidated by technology? Is this a reason not to use technology? Sunday, 1 November 2009
