Technology As Usual - Or Not
Technology As Usual - Or Not! Creating an online classroom and making sure that the students can be successful in them is a craft that instructional designers and instructors work on endlessly. Building online and blended content for the new technological classrooms requires more time and energy than the traditional classroom that most of us grew up with.
Technology in the classroom is an interesting study. It is even more interesting when you allow the students to lead the discussion. I took a look at the average high school, and I asked the questions, "So what's so great about technology?"
Technology as Usual - Or Not! is the second in a collection of books written with "the moment" in mind. I was inspired to write this volume after working in a rural community high school. Working with students and getting their perspective on technology was enlightening. The real voices of technology are the voices of youth. They will pick and choose what technology survives or fades away. They will be the next innovators.
