Integrating technology and pedagogy in the classroom
Miguel Nussbaum, Universidad Católica de Chile
We have evolved from classroom where students were passive to classrooms where students ask for more interactivity — especially where they have notebooks in their desks. So, what does it mean to change the classroom dynamics?
Still, in many classrooms the participatory literacy has not yet been reached. So, even if the computers have been introduced in the classroom, still lots of thing remain unaltered.
Collaborative or participative learning is based in two issues:
- The social network, where learning actually occurs. There is an interchange of knowledge amongst children, there is a collaborative construction of knowledge. And technology is there to support the social network, to make it work.
- The role of the teacher is to support the groups that are learning together. Thus, the teacher has to have the tools to perform this supporting task.
