Moving Teaching and Learning with Technology from Adoption to Transformation
Hartman, Joel L.
EDUCAUSE Review, v43 n6 p24-25 Nov-Dec 2008
Information technology has been an important part of higher education since the development of the lantern slide in the mid-1800s. However, occasions in which the academy has been "transformed" by technology are rare. Viewed in a historical perspective, these occasions can be considered as a series of three epochs: the online public-access catalog epoch; the personal computer, Internet, and web epoch; and the enterprise systems (ERP, CMS) epoch. However, for most colleges and universities, these epochs no longer represent technological frontiers. For educators in higher education, they are now focusing their attention on technology applications for teaching, learning, and research--or what can be viewed as the epochs of teaching and learning with technology, and cyberinfrastructure. In this commentary, the author focuses his comments to teaching and learning and discusses the need for systemic transformation to improve teaching and learning with technology. (Contains 4 notes.)
