Last week, I went to a Symposium about computers and education. This is an advertisement pic I found there. It says “the technology that grabs the student’s attention” (the translation is not the best but you get the picture 🙂
So, the students work alone (a desk per student) and the teacher is still on the stage (instead of blackboard, he uses a digital board).
We can use technology to update the classroom, make it “modern” and “prettier” but… is this the best we can do? I don’t want to update the classroom, I want to change them!!! This isn’t e-learning 2.0, this is “traditional classroom 2.0″… Or, as gamers would say: this isn’t remodelling, it’s just reskinning arghhhh
