Technology in Education – The students view
This is a great video created by Justin Tarte featuring 25 students he interviewed regarding their opinion of the use of technology in education.
In his own words:
We all live in a world that is rapidly changing, and in particular, the advancements associated with technology. As society evolves and changes, schools are coming under increasing pressure to stay with the times. So often we hear that technology is a silver bullet in education, but we must remember that technology is merely a tool.A tool in the hands of a sub-par educator will continue to yield a sub-par education, while a tool in the hands of a great educator will only enhance and aid that educator.
With the huge push for technology in schools, I thought it would only be fitting to take some time and ask what students thought. Here are the responses from 25 students at Seckman High School in Imperial, MO.
