A thought March 20, 2008

Education Technology or Instructional Technology should take a few pointers from business. I was IMing KG yesterday, and we were talking about how far behind education is in the realm of tech.

Now, take this with a grain of salt. My parents are far behind. They still use an OS 9 iMac from way back. When I say far behind in this context, I mean that education takes a couple of tech generations to catch up.

For example, here’s what I told KG:

the education tech conference i went to, people are still just figuring that out
7:48
questions like, “how do i use the myspace to connect with my students”
7:48
when really, it’s not about myspace
7:49
it’s more about the conceptual social computing aspect and allowing more personalized freedom and educational experiences

Then she said, “you so need to blog that.” So I did.
