Revolution or Evolution: Social Technologies and Pedagogical Change

March 4, 2011 at 2pm ET - free to all.  

Presenters: Derek Bruff, Vanderbilt University; Dwayne Harapnuik, Abilene Christian University; Jim Julius, San Diego State University

Social technologies such as wikis, blogs, Twitter, and smart phones open up avenues for learning and collaboration that hold great promise for transforming education. Do these technologies, along with the easy access to information that the Web provides, call for a revolution in education, one that rejects what some call the Industrial Model commonly practiced? Such a revolution sounds exciting, but is revolution possible or even appropriate in an environment where evolution—in fact, slow evolution—seems the norm? This session will explore the forces for and against revolution, as well as practical strategies for encouraging change in educational technology use.

NOTE:  Login instructions for the session will be sent in the Registration Confirmation Email. Please check your Junk folder as sometimes these emails get trapped there. We will also send an additional login reminder 24 hours prior to the start of the event.
