Technological Affordances or Don’t use a lamp as a doorstop

Technological Affordances is a fancy term for a very simple idea

Let’s say I want to open a can of soup

What should I use? • A Rock • A hammer and chisel • A can opener

I walk into a dark room and I want to be able to see

What should I do? • Open a book • Turn on the TV • Turn on a lamp

What if we want to teach people about the Bill of Rights?

What medium should we use? • A book • A documentary • A video game

People pay attention to media they like

Education is about Development

All technology has different strengths

Simulation

New Perspectives and Empathy

Inquiry and Collaboration

We’re all experimenting!
