Keeping up with the Joneses...
Reading this week’s post about how technology has infiltrated and changed pedagogy was probably the reason many of us are in the Coetail program. I mean, we all want to use technology, but the question is to what level? More specifically, are we using technology to its fullest potential. Most of us probably feel that there answer is no, myself included. I use technology, but do I allow it to transform my classroom. Not exactly, but I’m trying. When thinking of this I envision the old adding machines. This is technology, but is it transformative? Not really, but it does have value in that it speeds the process up. While we can all agree that technology has speeded things up so that we can do more in the classroom, the real question is to what level of Blooms Taxonomy are we reaching. More low level thinking is not the answer to successful implementation, connection is though. Using the SAMR model I mostly stay with augmentation while dipping into the modification waters ever so often. Of course the ultimate goal is redefinition, something that creates the ideals of a 21st century learner. I will keep pushing, learning and trying to develop a more holistic approach.
