Rather than merely make traditional education more efficient through the use of technology, teachers should seek to transform teaching and learning by embracing disruptive uses of technology. Blogging, podcasting, wikis, digital storytelling, and other web 2.0 technologies can be employed in powerful and creative way in schools. As Mike Muir has observed, these tools have the ability to change education. Ultimately, educators and administrators must choose to utilize these tools in innovative ways if education will change. Authentic education should be about conversation, complexity, and messy assessment, and these disruptive technology tools can powerfully empower both students and teachers in truly educative experiences.

One Response to Podcast50: Embrace Disruptive Technology Use

  1. Thanks for the mention, Wes. Embracing disruptive technologies is a bit like embracing a cactus or a rose bush. It may smell nice, but you’re going to bleed. And, those who don’t embrace may be eager to impose a crown of thorns just to make sure the next hugger that comes along knows his/her place.

    BTW, you may want to link to this poorly disguised MySpace entry: Lord Voldemort is Listening…
    http://www.mguhlin.net/blog/archives/2006/04/entry_1328.htm
    not the one you currently have linked, although it is related.

    Take care,
    Miguel Guhlin
