The Second Educational Revolution: Rethinking Education in the Age of Technology
Collins, A.; Halverson, R.
Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, v26 n1 p18-27 Feb 2010
This paper drew upon a recent book ("Rethinking Education in the Age of Technology") to summarize a number of prospects and challenges arising from the appropriation of digital technology into learning and educational practice. Tensions between traditional models of schooling and the affordances of digital media were noted, while the promise of these technologies for shaping a new system of education was reviewed. It was argued that new technology brings radical opportunities but also significant challenges. The urgency of seeking a coherent model for the future of education in a technological age was stressed.
