Levels of Technology Use

“The predominant learning tool defines the predominant learning task in the classroom” ~Alan Kay

If all I’m doing with computers is word processing – same as with pencil – that’s accommodating, not transformative

Enemies of Change
Villain #1: Fear (especially of change)
Villian #2: Ignorance

Levels of Technology Use
(from forthcoming book, Powerful Ingredients 4 Blended Learning)
1. Awareness
2. Personal Use
3. Professional Use (copied)
4. Professional Use (invented)

All of these are possible without technology; technology enhances the learning
