What do you want kids to do with technology? Back to list

Are we using technology for the right reasons? Check out this graphic.


This graphic, posted on Bill Ferriter on Twitter, talks about whether we’re using technology for the right reasons. It’s difficult to do a Prezi or write a blog if you don’t really know what you want to say or if you aren’t clear why you’re writing something, so yes, I agree with Bill Ferriter. We need to make sure we’re preparing our students not only to produce a Prezi but to learn about how to structure, use visual information, pace, etc. a good presentation whether that’s using Prezi or any other software presentation tool that might come our way in the future. Bill Ferriter’s ‘Right answers’ are the overall arching themes we need to address in education and that isn’t just about technology. They’re the life skills we all need to survive in a competitive, global world.
