Designing Opportunities for Transformation with Emerging Technologies
Veletsianos, George
Educational Technology, v51 n2 p41-46 Mar-Apr 2011
In this article, the author argues that technology use in education has focused on combating instructional problems and inefficiencies. While technology use for such purposes is viable and important, the author proposes that practitioners and researchers in this field utilize emerging technologies as a means to provide opportunities for personally relevant and meaningful transformation. The author discusses strategies for providing such opportunities and presents examples of potentially transformative learning activities and environments. The article concludes with caveats regarding the pursuit of transformation in technology-enhanced learning environments. (Contains 1 footnote.)
