This is how she emphasizes how attached teens are to technology. She gives examples on the way students from K-12 are taught to simplify the way they perform academically now that technology has more advances. She says the use of PowerPoints, a computer software, is not the same as critical thinking and great things are learned through long challenging pieces, like books. Another disadvantage we have with technology is that it can be very distracting and people may tend to multi-task. Turkle says "when multitasking, everything gets done a little worse; there 's a degradation of all functions."
These tests would show whether a student has performed well or not (OccupyTheory, 2014). Standardized testing may be able to save time and consume less effort but this is an unfair way of measuring one’s intellectual and academic capability. There are many factors—the student’s background, the external factors affecting him/her, the non-academic factors and the like—to be considered in evaluating such performances especially in the forming years of a child. Standardized tests may be unbiased but it is not the perfect yardstick for
This would save districts money because they wouldn’t be spending millions of dollars on devices that will only last them a short time or that are not best suited for the needs of the teachers and students. Education Technology is a relatively new conversation within education it is important to keep in mind that solutions to achieve ed-tech sustainability may become more abundant as research and trials
To maintain academic integrity in online learning has become more challenging because of use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) , potentially decreased interaction among online students and teachers, and faculty may not have adequate expertise to prevent or detect cheating (REF) • Online learning is entirely depending upon ICT based resources which have provided new avenues for teaching and learning. Accessibility and convenience through these learning
They may look from different perspectives. This is because the creation of blended learning might need a lot of time but it is only temporary to get a better result in future. Another perception of blended learning is the misunderstanding teachers often make in the implementation of blended learning is that teachers pay much attention on the network platform and they design a lot of activities to allow students to learn more. But the result of doing so makes the students' cognitive load increased blended learning counterproductive (Shengjian Chen and Yun Lu, 2013,
Gender stereotypes don’t help create an effective learning environment within a classroom. Now, this affects the classroom environment due to how much peer work is needed to be completed with certain assignments. Classrooms are meant to help children learn fundamental subjects and how to work collaboratively. According to an article called “Gender Socialization” written by a website called Lumen states, “when children do not conform to the appropriate gender role, they may face negative sanctions such as being criticized or marginalized by their peers.” When this happens, peers are neglected or even outcasted by these gender roles and can cause the student to not be able to learn effectively with being criticized. Along with that, students won’t be able to learn effectively with how they might be worrying about the criticism being placed upon them by their peers rather than focusing on the classroom work.
People often put off important tasks, whether it’s something easy or challenging, until the last minute. It’s not something to be proud of, but it’s not something that one can easily overcome. As most know, procrastination, according to the online Cambridge Dictionary, is the act of delaying something that must be done, often because it is unpleasant or boring. Although many dawdle due to psychological factors, more people, especially students, now find themselves being drawn to ongoing distractions from advancing technology and easy access to social media platforms that are affecting GPAs, sleep patterns, and general health. Technology was initially developed to help individuals to be more efficient with their tasks.
Students that are less educated in today’s society are more likely to have difficulties in setting priorities and making appropriate life choices. There are ongoing issues with students failing through traditional methods of the school system. Although government policy makers have come up with a variety of methods to implement ways to enhance the school system, they are still
Authentic assessment is a powerful tool for engaging students in learning. However, an authentic task for measurement may not be as practical or reliable, since it will require more time than a traditional test and reporting on student achievement may create rater
I think that technology will definitely take a big part in education in the future. It is a clever machine that could not only help teach effectively, but also efficiently. Although technology is beneficial to education, there can be some drawbacks. After all, technology isn’t human and cannot answer more opinion and moral based questions that students have and need. Sometimes, us student just need these ideas to guide us in our schoolwork.
