I completely agree to Alana’s blog RE: Why Technology Training for Faculty is a waste of time… (not really… but…).Technology for educational purposes is a means and not an end in itself. The effective use of technology is based on understanding its features, functions and possibilities and matching it with the outcomes to be accomplished.
“Ten Guiding Principles for the Use of Technology in Learning” from Contact North articulates the role of technologies in education. It sets out to define learning technologies in an educational context and outlines 10 guiding principles. It invites us to reflect and discuss the interpretation and application of technologies in an educational setting.
What would make a sound set of criteria for the use of technology in teaching and learning for our school?
