The majority of parents in the United States are unsatisfied with the way technology is implemented in K-12 schools. At the same time, the majority of educators say that students are more engaged in school work as a result of technology implementations and that there is a corresponding increase in student achievement, according to a new survey released this week by Project Tomorrow-NetDay....T.H.E.Journal
I tend to think that when teachers actually use some of the newer resources, they feel they are changing education. I visited a school with a Smartboard in nearly every room. Their Principal was ecstatic at how great the teachers were buying in. During my visit, I saw at least 5 power point presentations. Only one class - Foreign Lang. - was actually using the Smart tools available. No one was using collaboration :(
Using the new to do the old just won't change education.
