A Systemic Integration of Technology for New-Paradigm Education
Watson, William R.; Watson, Sunnie Lee; Reigeluth, Charles M.
Educational Technology, v52 n5 p25-29 Sep-Oct 2012
Educational reform efforts have failed to create widespread improvement. The authors argue that rather than trying to improve the existing system of education, a new learner-centered paradigm is needed that supports individualized learning. Such a significantly different system of education will require the systemic application of technology to support all stakeholders throughout the entire learning process. A vision for such a technology, called the personalized integrated educational system (PIES), is described, and a narrative of its application is presented. Such a technology is not only necessary but can itself help to transform education systems. (Contains 2 tables.)
