Technology as the Enabler of a New Wave of Active Learning
Rollag, Keith; Billsberry, Jon
Journal of Management Education, v36 n6 p743-752 Dec 2012
Education has always been slow on the uptake of new technology. Instructors have established time-worn methods of teaching, and the performance nature of the job puts an emphasis on reliability and predictability. The last thing an instructor wants to be doing is fumbling around trying to make something work in front of an audience of 200 undergraduates. Although LCD projectors and whiteboards have made purely blackboard-based teaching less common, instructors have resisted more complicated and exotic forms of teaching technology. The bandwidth was not there, the technology was hard to understand and use, and the supporting technology was not robust enough to ensure a reliable, positive learning experience. But things have dramatically changed in the past 10 years. People are now seeing education technologies that are "easy-to-access" on a variety of computer platforms, "easy-to-use" for both students and faculty, and much more robust and failure-proof. This article discusses the impact of technology on management education, which is the subject of this issue of "Journal of Management Education."
