Transcript of How technology has shaped education

How Technology has shaped education. But not for everyone. And not for certain. And now we have Ipads and all the apps we could need. Even the way we learn & think is changing http://www.marcprensky.com/writing/ When these first became popular in the 1970's there were concerns and resistance as it was thought that basic arithmetic would suffer Calculators + - = % The 1990's saw a dramatic increase in the number of schools using computers and the internet in education Computers and the internet Not for everyone though......... Until 1891 you had to pay to go to school (if you could afford it). Paper was expensive so students wrote on slates. In the beginning...... 75 millions children don't go to school (UNESCO)

Two-thirds of the world’s children who receive less than four years of education are girls. Girls represent nearly 60% of the children not in school. (www.dosomething.org)

The schools often consist of a basic room or rooms with no windows. They lack electricity and are lucky if they have a chalkboard. Not all children could go to school as they worked 16 hour days Some people thought it wasn't worth educating a girl as she would marry Does this sound
Familar??????? Have things really changed They still DO! They still DO! Can technology change this? Maybe it will..... Maybe it won't..... But there is no getting away from the fact that technology has changed education. It is up to us to use it in the right way http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-20899109 Blackboards became whiteboards
