New Study: Students Use Technology Everywhere but School
"But van Broekhuizen said K-12 has never really tried to harness technology to personalize, deepen and better integrate learning across subjects.
“Until we can actually say we have given ample opportunity to see if it works, until we have set policies to make it work and trained teachers to help students and encourage them to use technology for learning purposes and to enhance their learning, until we actually have done all that, you can’t say it is not working,” he said.
Whether schools are ready or not, technology will eventually work its way to the classroom and into the hands of students, said van Broekhuizen. “We can probably do nothing and everything will change anyway. Because at some point the whole use of digital tools will be such an intrinsic piece of our society, by sheer force it is going to make its way in.”
