Technology versus Learning

Technology versus Learning: Are We Winning Yet? – Victoria Brazil

Technology is good for learning – information and even wisdom at our fingertips, tech like simulation and virtual reality is cool. And technology really hit its straps with social and collaborative learning. But technology is bad – distract and multi-tasking impairs learning, our health can suffer, and good technology can be badly applied (eg PowerPoint as a ‘crime against connection’ in presentations). Some technology is expensive without learning impact, and social media and the internet have dark sides… Vic offers us some thoughts on navigating the good, bad and ugly and suggests some personal strategies for making the most of technology for learning. And there is no Powerpoint….
