Some Thoughts about Teaching and Technology
Glassman, William E.
College Quarterly, v13 n2 Spr 2010
In this essay, the author shares some thoughts about teaching and technology and focuses on how technological changes have (or have not) changed teaching. He asserts that technology, and it's role in teaching, has been evolving throughout recorded history. Technological change is not new; if there is any significant difference in the past fifteen years, it is simply the rate of change, not the existence of change. At the same time, rate does matter, especially when the changes come so quickly within a human lifespan. While the learning capacities of the human brain have not changed in the past fifteen years, this does not mean that teaching can or should remain static--and trying to sort out what to change, and what not to, has been an on-going journey for the author. To understand this journey (which has been shared by many others involved in teaching), the author describes his personal experiences. He highlights a few examples drawn from his own experiences, in the hope that they may help others who struggle to sort out the role of technology in their own teaching.
