Trickle down Technology: Tech Lessons Learned from Higher Ed
O'Hanlon, Charlene
T.H.E. Journal, v37 n10 p28-30, 32-33 Nov-Dec 2010
Care has to be taken when relating technology's use in college and university lecture halls to the way it's applied in K-12 classrooms. Differences in pedagogy, learning styles, and even attendance can impact the way the respective students in the two environments consume technology, which in turn impacts the technology's effectiveness as a learning tool. A key distinction is that K-12 often plays reluctant latecomer to higher ed's aggressive early adopter. But that's not entirely a bad thing. It means that K-12 administrators can take from the experiences colleges and universities have acquired through their use of various tools, and then apply what has worked best, molding it to suit their needs. In effect, higher ed has become a de facto laboratory for discovering the best uses of technology and its impact on the learning experience.
