Technology as an Amplifier
In recent decades, there has existed in education the question, “Why technology?”
The question itself is a rather good one if posed with genuine inquiry that seeks to find and actualize the potential that exists when technology meets learning.
Yet there are times when the question is asked with a different spirit. The question is raised with a predetermined answer that believes there is very little to no value in utilizing technology in learning. That it is a distraction. A danger. A hindrance to the progress of developing the intellect of our students and society.
If you know of someone posing the question in this spirit, I hope you will invite them to view the video below.
Technology amplifies human potential. If you find yourself disagreeing, please watch the extraordinary students and staff below demonstrate otherwise.
