Students’ View of Technology in the Classroom

Filed under: Education and Technology — Ken @ 2:12 pm

Although much progress has been made with the effective use of technology in the classroom, a disparity still exists between student expectations and faculty capabilities. There are many things to chew on in this video (it’s a parody, I know) but three things jump out for me: 1) faculty need the right kind of support to use technology in the classroom; 2) the use of technology should always serve a specific purpose; 3) today’s students need to play an active role in their learning and one way to engage them in that role is to allow them to facilitate their learning through technology.
