In a column for Technology and Learning, Terry Freedman has a strangely mixed bag of questions he proposes as topics for debate about the use of technology for teaching and learning.
To me, number seven is probably the most relevant to the discussion. And the simplest to answer.
Does it matter if schools do not embed educational technology in the curriculum?
Of course not.
With the teacher-centered structure of most classrooms and our over-emphasis on standardized testing as the ultimate assessment tool, instructional technology is largely irrelevant.
Not only does embedding educational technology not matter, it’s pretty much impossible.
However, I’d love to be proven wrong in this debate.
