Technology in Education; the case against?

Jordan, Lindsay (2013) Technology in Education; the case against? In: Future of Technology in Education 2013, 11 October 2013, ULCC, London.

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Jordan, Lindsay

Many believe we live in a brave new world where technology is removing barriers to education, connecting us with others and enabling us to live, work and learn more efficiently and effectively. But there is dissention in the ranks… the pace of technological change is far outstripping the pace of change in academic practices.

Resistance to the use of learning technologies is widespread. If we write off this resistance as a generic and irrational fear of change that will naturally decrease as the fusty tweed-clad generation retire or find another career, we risk stigmatising effective practices that have real pedagogic value, and forcing diverse approaches and practitioners into silos.

In this session we will get to know some of the educators who are pushing back against the onwards march of technology. We will explore their beliefs and try to understand their reasoning, with the intention that this will enable us to be more inclusive in our own practices. Through this we may even find innovative ways to blend the old with the new, and to benefit from the best of both.
