10 Technologys Role in 21st Century Student Learning: Introduction Cincinnati Country Day School Vision "The biggest change I have experienced is the change from the desired model being a brilliant lecturer to the desired model being a student-centered teacher, where the activity of the student is the key to the learning experience- where knowledge is being created by the student rather than being 'poured in' to a student's mind. In the future, the importance of technology will grow, exponentially. The way it will be used, however, will only slightly resemble the way we use it now. More software will become available for education that truly takes advantage of the power of the modern computer… Students will be able to communicate, quickly and easily with experts around the world, and classes that meet online will be as common or more common than the actual classes we have today. Far from being more sterile and remote feeling, these classes will be incredibly rich human experiences in which students collaborate in exciting, authentic discoveries. -- Quote from Joe Hofmeister, Director of Technology

12 Why computers have not saved the classroom A new book says technology - from TV to the laptop - delivers less than hoped for by schools By Bob Blaisdell | Special to The Christian Science Monitor What impact has computer technology had on public education in the US? That's the question journalist Todd Oppenheimer sets out to answer in "The Flickering Mind." Mr. Oppenheimer's conclusion: Putting computers in classrooms has been almost entirely wasteful, and the rush to keep schools up-to-date with the latest technology has been largely pointless. "At this early stage of the personal computer's history, the technology is far too complex and error prone to be smoothly integrated into most classrooms," Oppenheimer writes. "While the technology business is creatively frantic, financially strapped public schools cannot afford to keep up with the innovations." THE FLICKERING MIND: THE FALSE PROMISE OF TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM By Todd Oppenheimer Random House 512 pp., $25.95

13 Technologys Role in 21st Century Student Learning: Introduction Hello, Empowering Students With Technology, my new book about powerful stories and practical applications, is hot off the press. The ideas, applications, and stories in the book can be applied by a wide range of educators and policy makers who are interested in the impact of technology on learning. Teachers across the content areas can use the activities to motivate and challenge their students to develop critical thinking and problem solving strategies. Stories of successful teachers are woven throughout the book to provide examples that work. Planning committees can use the ideas and the pioneering stories to move beyond technology literacy to information and communication literacy. Principals can benefit from the ideas about leadership and managing change. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me: Sincerely, Alan C. November

14 Technologys Role in 21st Century Student Learning: Introduction The Productivity Paradox During the 1990s companies of both the New Economy and Old Economy experienced significant gains in productivity. Most economists, including Federal Reserve Bank chairman Alan Greenspan, credit technology as the foundation of this gain. This had not been the case in the 1970s and 80s, when reports found a productivity paradox where technology investment led to no appreciable productivity gains. Key differences in the 90s: a critical mass of users, more advanced personal work applications, enterprise-wide applications, and most importantly, widespread utilization of and intranets for work and corporate communications. Not only were individuals becoming more productive, but communications and collaboration built community and lessened the need for middle management and supervision. Many schools and school systems may just now be reaching a similar take-off point.

15 Technologys Role in 21st Century Student Learning: Introduction From Smart Toilets to Smart Schools This provocative and humorous look at different ways of using technology to improve learning will challenge participants to examine their basic assumptions about how to plan for information technologies. The challenge? How can we move from simply improving current reality (flushing the curriculum faster) to creating visions of learning that will provide our students and communities with the skills that they will need to navigate in a complex global economy?
