edtech plj Lesson Five

Posted by jturner56 on September 23, 2009

5) EdTech is still too much based on belief.
As I prepare for a new school year in a new school with significant tech change (1:1 introduction) I am struck with how little many elements of school use of digital techs have changed in the past 20 years (increasing availability of digtechs and student capabilities / potential aside). It is a leadership issue which is prone to superficial changes and fad focusing. Real edtech requires ongoing commitment to handle everchanging learning; connections to and with other learners; willingness to work with what many find unacceptable levels of tech unreliability; a willingness to engage in bricolage. Perhaps we need to look beyond Fox Mulder & his credo ‘I want to believe’. What will it take for all of us (at least in schools) to believe at least to an embedded level?
