Is technology in the classroom always an enhancement to education?
According to author and innovative educator Marc Prensky, writing in the journal Educational Technology (read full article), “Technology does not, and cannot, support the old pedagogy of telling / lecturing, except in the most minimal ways…In fact, when teachers are using the old ‘telling’ paradigm, adding technology, more often than not, gets in the way.”
For the sake of our students, we must do better with these potentially powerful teaching tools than simply "get in the way!"
Please join us for a FREE seminar on Saturday, September 6, from 1-3 PM at LRCE in Baton Rouge, where we'll explore the pros, cons and caveats of technology in teaching and in the classroom.
This event is designed for teachers, school administrators and anyone with an interest in education and the future of today's students. See and share flyer in PDF, attached.
