How New Technologies Have (and Have Not) Changed Teaching and Learning in Schools
Halverson, Richard; Smith, Annette
Journal of Computing in Teacher Education, v26 n2 p49-54 Win 2009-2010
Information technologies have reshaped teaching and learning in schools, but often not in ways anticipated by technology proponents. This paper proposes a contrast between technologies for learning and technologies for learners to explain how technologies influence teaching and learning in and out of schools. Schools have made significant use of assessment and instructional technologies that help promote learning for all students, whereas technologies for learners, such as mobile devices, video games, and social networking sites, are typically excluded from school contexts. The paper considers how these contrasting models of technology use will come to shape schools and learning in a pluralistic society.
