A history of technology in Education


The emergence of the Web, and the characteristics of Web 1.0



Web 2.0?  What is it?  What is different?


  • participatory
  • collaborative
  • changing nature of information, and who produces it, and how it is consumed.
  • dependent upon network and network effects


Examples of Web 2.0 tools:  The Big 4



What does this mean for education and kids?  Will this change the landscape of the classroom and the learning that takes place there?  How do classrooms become more permeable?

A framework for learning with technology


1.  The technology supports a fundamental literacy that the school believes in

2.  The technology adds value to the learning process | it takes learning to a place that could not be achieved unless the technology had been included.

3.  The use of technology is framed within a sound instructional pedagogy.

4.  There is assessment data that enables the evaluation of the learning, and of the application of technology, if possible.


Within the context of this framework, it is my belief that the following skills must be developed in students.

Student Skills


  • Connect
  • Create
  • Communicate
  • Collaborate
