#UTedChat Questions for 9/21 – Why isn’t technology getting results?
We’re excited to have Chris Larsen (@MrLarsen) leading our #UTedChat tonight. We will be discussing why isn’t technology getting results. It should be a great discussion and we hope you can all come and share your thoughts. If you haven’t already followed Chris (@MrLarsen) you should probably do so because it will help you to better follow the chat.
Q1: Do classrooms that you see today look the same as they did when you were a student? Do you see this as a positive or negative?
Q2: “We are currently preparing Ss for jobs that don’t yet exist … using technologies that haven’t been invented … in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.” How do we do this? What skills do students need? What abilities do teachers need?
