Integrating Educational Technologies into the Culinary Classroom and Instructional Kitchen
The integration of educational technologies has and will continue to change the nature of education. From the advent of the printed word to the current use of computer assisted teaching and learning, the use of technology is an integral part of modern day realities and approaches to education. The purpose of this paper is to review some of the educational technologies which have been integrated into the culinary classroom and instructional kitchen. Educational technology has become part of the fabric of current educational practice, one which educators should now accept and use. In the culinary classroom and instructional kitchen, the role of educational technology is and should continue to be one of a complimentary nature, which supports kinaesthetic experiences, collaborative learning, and face-to-face encounters, rather than replacing it. In both the culinary classroom and instructional kitchen, technological changes and innovations are a reality. As with educators, aspiring culinarians must be aware of current technological advances in order to remain competitive and current. Both educational technologies and recipes contain several ingredients and directions, which, when used correctly can result in a wonderful creation, be it knowledge or food. Here's hoping that recipe is properly researched, developed, and adhered too.
