-realistic UTOPIAN EDUCATION COMPUTER IS COMPLEX the fact Education has barely changed Although technology has
changed our world

Even we Know
that is necessary to change it Because it is important to change our educational devices which “though important, are not as central to tomorrow's schooling as are new roles for student and teacher. Citizens of the future will find much less need for sameness of function or vision. To the contrary, they will be rewarded for diversity and originality. Therefore, any real or imagined need for standardized classroom presentation may rapidly fade; the very first casualty of the present-day school system may well be the whole business of teacher-led instruction as we know it.”

http://www.aare.edu.au/02pap/lyn02031.htm In reconstituting learning as the acquisition of information, the computer also shifts our values. The computer embodies a particular value system, a technological thought world first articulated by Francis Bacon and René Descartes four hundred years ago, that turns our attention outward toward asserting control over our environment (that is essentially what technologies do–extend our power to control from a distance). As it has gradually come to dominate Western thinking, this ideology has entered our educational institutions. Its growing dominance is witnessed in the language that abounds in education: talk of empowerment, student control of learning, standards, assessment tools, and productivity. Almost gone from the conversation are those inner concerns–wisdom, truth, character, imagination, creativity, and meaning–that once formed the core values of education. Outcomes have replaced insights as the yardstick of learning, while standardized tests are replacing human judgment as the means of assessment. No tool supports this technological shift more than computers.

of a new reality determined
by the political
and economic
structures Not anymore only for higher education

But either for compulsory education

No longer associated just with distance learning

But offers teachers new approaches to teaching

In a traditional or cyber classroom E-Learning NOT ENOUGH BENEFITS by the Open Education

“What we are seeing are developments in the higher education landscape that appear to meet every single one of the criteria we have set forth for open education: increased  access, decreased cost, things that will allow more people than ever, on a planetary scale–1 billion individual learners at a time customize their education, fit it into their busy lives, earn a paycheck, find a path to a glorious vocational future.”

Confidence about being able to learn to use new tools
High motivation to use technology
Plenty of information
Computers can simulate experience and give immediate results.
Artificial environment
Do the students Know how to use technology in order to learn?

Do the teachers know how to use it themselves?

Do the teachers Know how to teach students to use it
improving higher order thinking skills
(problem solving, critical thinking, creativity)? A smart “Digital Immigrant” teacher realizes that there is not only one way - the old way- of learning. As a result he must not be afraid of technology... WHY ? the needs change Our students have changed radically.
Today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach.
