The Journal of Research on Technology in Education JRTE publishes articles that report on original research, project descriptions/evaluations, syntheses of the literature, assessments of the state of the art, and theoretical or conceptual positions that relate to the field of educational technology in teaching and learning and. Contracts, transactions, and records of them provide critical structure in our economic system, but they haven’t kept up with the world’s digital transformation. They’re like rush-hour gridlock trapping a Formula 1 race car. The technology behind bitcoin, blockchain is an open, distributed ledger that records transactions safely, permanently, and very efficiently. For instance, while the transfer of a share of stock can now take up to a week, with blockchain it could happen in seconds. Blockchain could slash the cost of transactions and eliminate intermediaries like lawyers and bankers, and that could transform the economy. But, like the adoption of more internet technologies, blockchain’s adoption will require broad coordination and will take years. In this article the authors describe the path that blockchain is likely to follow and explain how firms should think about investments in it. We’ve all heard that blockchain will revolutionize business, but it’s going to take a lot longer than many people claim. Like TCP/IP (on which the internet was built), blockchain is a foundational technology that will require broad coordination.

Dec 16, 2013. It's hard to talk about schools today without talking about technology. Enthusiasts celebrate the wonders of tablets, virtual schools, and “blended” learning. Skeptics recall a litany of overhyped, underwhelming past efforts. News accounts. Abstract This study was motivated by the premise that no nation grows further than the quality of its educational leaders. The purpose of this theoretical debate is to examine the wider context of leadership and its effectiveness towards improving school management. This academic evaluation examines recent theoretical developments in the study of educational leadership in school management. It begins with a concise overview of the meaning and concept of leadership in terms of research, theory, and practice. It is increasingly accepted, however, that in order to be a good leader, one must have the experience, knowledge, commitment, patience, and most importantly the skill to negotiate and work with others to achieve goals. Good leadership is developed through a never ending process of self-study, education, training, and the accumulation of relevant experience (Bass & Bass, 2008). This is followed by an examination of the theories of leadership, principles and styles of leadership. According to Boulding (1956) in book “The Image: Knowledge in Life and Society”, outlined the general transdisciplinary theory of knowledge and human, social, and organizational behaviour. Each section ends with an identification of contemporary issues and possible means of amelioration. He stated that the basis of a good leadership is strong character and selfless devotion to an organization (Jenkins, 2013). This article concludes that success is certain if the application of the leadership styles, principles and methods is properly and fully applied in school management because quality educational leadership tradition offers great opportunity to further refine educational leadership and management policies and practices by accepting and utilizing the basic principles and styles of educational leadership. From the perspective of employees, leadership is comprised of everything a leader does that affects the achievement of objectives and the well-being of employees and the organization (Abbasialiya, 2010).

Article Review on the Use of Technology in the Classroom Name Course Institution Date Article Review on the Use of Technology in the Classroom Article Summary A. Shalni Gulati University of Oxford, UK Learning ‘using’ technologies has become a global phenomenon. The Internet is often seen as a value-neutral tool that potentially allows individuals to overcome the constraints of traditional elitist spaces and gain unhindered access to learning. It is widely suggested that online technologies can help address issues of educational equity and social exclusion, and open up democratic and accessible educational opportunities. The national governments and non-governmental agencies who fund educational endeavours in developing countries have advocated the use of new technologies to reduce the cost of reaching and educating large numbers of children and adults who are currently missing out on education. This paper presents an overview of the educational developments in open, distance, and technology-facilitated learning that aim to reach the educationally deprived populations of the world. It reveals the challenges encountered by children and adults in developing countries as they attempt to access available educational opportunities. The discussion questions whether, in face of these challenges, developing nations should continue to invest money, time, and effort into e-learning developments. Can technology-enhanced learning help address the poverty, literacy, social, and political problems in developing countries?

Videoconferencing at present is a medium for learning partnerships both in the local scene and in the international setup. Reynard (2012) cited “the inclusion of video increases the sense of presence,” and considers this as a means of collaboration. This educational tool has evolved in the recent years to include media tools, such as chat, as well as interactive whiteboards, which increase the exchange of ideas and resources alike, taking learning and the accumulation of knowledge to new heights (Reynard, 2012). This promotes access to what is otherwise accessible – locations which are commonly not that open to the public and expert educators who are too geographically distant; in reference to inaccessible locations, virtual tours are utilized (Reynard, 2012). Another advantage of this modern day educational tool is that it can make available the unavailable, such as classes not normally offered in the school, or those beyond the normal hours of school, which would be highly advantageous for those who are not able to avail of normal class hours (Reynard, 2012). Another important benefit of videoconferencing is that it helps students go the extra mile – tutoring and enrichment activities online, in real time, and without geographical constraints (Reynard, 2012). Furthermore, technology like videoconferencing may bridge the gap between different cultures as it provides worldwide reach to all students; this would yield better-informed students and well versed in aspects in which traditional students are not due to limited access to resources. There would be constant updates of any advancement or modification in education across the globe, as this education tool goes beyond geographical boundaries. In the future, students would be more interested and involved to learn as videoconferencing offers them interactive learning.
Technology as a Tool to Support Instruction By Lynne Schrum. This week, in an Education World "edu-torial," Lynne Schrum presents her personal perspective on the ways in which technology can enhance learning -- and calls on educators to take a leadership role in determining the ways in which technology is used to. New CEO Parekh's latest moves -- that are part of his overall strategy of providing comprehensive end-to-end digital solutions -- is just the thing that Infosys needs. Alex Underwood, VP and global head of Strategic Partnerships and Verticals at Spotify, explains how they combine machine learning and human curation to suggest new songs and artists; the opportunities offered by Io T and voice interaction; and how culture and current events help shape playlists.

Critical considerations about the potential influence of technology on educational design and implementation may provide teachers in higher education settings with the opportunity to modify their approaches to teaching and learning in novel ways. This literature review will examine the published literature on the use of. Despite increasingly widespread adoption of technologies in virtually every aspect of K-12 education, significant challenges are preventing widespread effective implementation. According to researchers, though some of those challenges are systemic and some related to the technologies themselves, teachers and education leaders share in the blame as well. "The NMC Horizon Report: 2013 K-12 Edition," put together by the New Media Consortium as part of the Horizon Project, identifies key emerging issues in education technology using primary and secondary research and input from an advisory board comprising "internationally recognized practitioners and experts" in ed tech. Among those issues are challenges that represent significant constraints on the adoption of technology in education. In past reports, those challenges have centered largely on reluctance on the part of administrators and teachers, lack of preparation, and lack of support or funding. This year's findings followed largely along those lines as well, though some new challenges were identified as well. Key among all challenges is the lack of adequate, ongoing professional development for teachers who are required to integrate new technologies into their classrooms yet who are unprepared or unable to understand new technologies. "All too often, when schools mandate the use of a specific technology, teachers are left without the tools (and often skills) to effectively integrate the new capabilities into their teaching methods," according to the report. "The results are that the new investments are underutilized, not used at all, or used in a way that mimics an old process rather than innovating new processes that may be more engaging for students." Challenge 2: resistance to change.
Sep 25, 2017. The end product is an August 2017 working paper, “Education Technology An Evidence-Based Review,” published by the National Bureau of Economic Research with clear tables on which technology improves learning and which doesn't. I talked with Quan and another co-author of the paper, Maya. Ran a cover story titled “One Man, One Computer, 10 Million Students: How Khan Academy Is Reinventing Education.” But we’ve been there before, plenty of times. Over time, though, they came to cherish it for its two great strengths. Indeed, in 1922, Thomas Edison proclaimed, “The motion picture is destined to revolutionize our educational system. First, it gave students access to experts from around the world; children were no longer dependent solely on their teachers for learning. In a few years it will supplant largely, if not entirely, the use of textbooks.” #ad#Edison’s enthusiasm is a familiar phenomenon. When it was first introduced, educators found it disconcerting and of dubious value. Commissioner of Education William Cooper established a radio section in the U. Indeed, we know of only one learning technology that has actually transformed teaching and learning: the book. By 1932, nine states were broadcasting regular educational programs and Benjamin Darrow, author of , touted radio as a “vibrant and challenging textbook of the air.” Similar stories can be told about TV, the desktop computer, laptops, and much else. Second, no longer reliant on teachers to tell them everything, students could learn at home or on their own. This “flipped” the classroom, allowing teachers to spend less time lecturing and more time explaining, mentoring, and facilitating. The book first became available to the masses after the invention of the printing press in the mid 1400s.
To illustrate that many claims about technology in education are in fact spurious, we will focus in this article on five specific myths and present the research findings. The different metastudies on this subject, analyzed by Hattie, reveal a considerable variation in results.8 A review study on the implementation of technology. Ethods used within the classroom not only need to keep evolving, but also harness the effects of the digital revolution in a positive and constructive manner. Creating a curriculum that appreciates the power of technology in the learning process can serve to increase engagement in the classroom and make learning easier and more efficient. A common misperception surrounding the impact of technology on learning is that the Internet, with all its factual data, has served to render our long-term memory as useless. Why commit to learning something if a simple press of a button will give you the answers you are looking for? Proponents of this argument therefore believe that the need to remember facts is no longer essential to our education. However, these arguments often ignore the dynamic between long-term memory and working memory. A person’s long-term memory has much more capacity than their working memory that can only remember between 4-7 items before it becomes overloaded. Therefore, working memory space is premium, in order for it to be free on a regular basis we have to commit certain facts to our long-term memory.

This study is a literature review to investigate the effects of implementing technology into a high school mathematics classroom. Mathematics has a hierarchical structure in learning and it is essential that students get a firm understanding of mathematics early in education. Some students that miss beginning concepts may. Clayn Lambert, Luke Erickson, Ali Alhramelah, Derick Rhoton, Robin Lindbeck, Dotty Sammons Idaho State University The demographics of students attending institutions of higher education in the United States are changing. Ryerson Review of Journalism, (February 19, 2007) Retrieved from Minter, R. From 2000–2009, these institutions have seen a 30% increase in enrollment of students aged 25 and over, with these groups making up 39%–42% of the total enrollment in these institutions (Snyder & Dillow, 2012). These students form a distinct population in that they often bring rich personal and employment experiences to the classroom, may struggle to support multiple roles and responsibilities above and beyond those of traditional learners, and can require significant adjustments in terms of their learning styles, needs, and abilities (Baptista, 2013; Ross-Gordon, 2011).

Students' motivation and attitudes in an online distance English course for placement year undergraduates in Taiwan (Doctoral dissertation, Queen's University Belfast). Faculty, especially in higher educational institutions, must adapt to employ technology effectively to deliver content for students, whether on campus or at a distance. The question to be asked is: How are faculty at institutions of higher education providing instruction that reflects the educational experiences and expectations such changes in technology bring with them?
This paper provides a review of the literature from 2009 to 2014 on student use of technology in early childhood education.

Don Knezek, the CEO of the International Society for Technology in Education, compares education without technology to the medical profession without technology. “If in 1970 you had knee surgery, you got a huge scar,” he says. “Now, if you have knee surgery you have two little dots.” Technology is helping teachers to expand beyond linear, text-based learning and to engage students who learn best in other ways. Its role in schools has evolved from a contained “computer class” into a versatile learning tool that could change how we demonstrate concepts, assign projects and assess progress. schools are still asking if they should incorporate more technology, while other countries are asking how. Despite these opportunities, adoption of technology by schools is still anything but ubiquitous. But in the following eight areas, technology has shown its potential for improving education. While a tuning fork is a perfectly acceptable way to demonstrate how vibrations make sound, it’s harder to show students what evolution is, how molecules behave in different situations, or exactly why mixing two particular chemicals is dangerous. Digital simulations and models can help teachers explain concepts that are too big or too small, or processes that happen too quickly or too slowly to demonstrate in a physical classroom.
Recently published articles from Educational Research Review. Challenging beliefs about cultural diversity in education A synthesis and critical review of trainings with pre-service teachers. June 2018. Sauro Civitillo. Technology-enhanced mathematics instruction A second-order meta-analysis of 30 years of research. Around the world, there is widespread and growing interest in the use of technology in education. A recent industry projection estimated the global education technology—or “edtech”—industry to be valued at $252 billion by 2020. However, the rapid growth in use of edtech has outpaced rigorous research on its effectiveness. It’s important to step back and understand how different technologies affect student learning in order to ensure education technology serves to close gaps in educational equality, rather than widen them. Among the paper’s many findings, computer-assisted learning (CAL)—using educational software to help students develop particular skills—emerges as a particularly promising model in education, especially when used to support learning in math. The review suggests that this approach may be effective because software can adapt instruction to a student’s learning level, letting kids learn at the pace that works best for them. It can also provide teachers with immediate feedback on student performance, enabling them to more quickly identify students who are struggling and intervene to help. Studies showed CAL was most effective when used as an in-class tool or as mandatory homework support, essentially providing personalized tutoring on an individual level.

Educational technology, sometimes shortened to Edu Tech or Ed Tech, is a wide field. Therefore, one can find many definitions, some of which are conflicting. Educational technology as an academic field can be considered either as a design science or as a collection of different research interests addressing fundamental issues of learning, teaching and social organization. Educational technology as practice refers to any form of teaching and learning that makes use of technology. Nevertheless, there are a few features on which most researchers and practitioners might agree: In this short introduction we will try to give a preliminary definition of the field. Therefore one can find many definitions, some of which are conflicting. Terminology issue: Educational technology is a field.

Sep 14, 2017. If you're trying to hunt down research to justify the use of technology in the classroom or argue against it, a working paper may provide you with information you need. "Education Technology An Evidence-Based Review," published by the National Bureau of Economic Research NBER, takes a global view. Educational technology is the use of both physical hardware and educational theoretics. It encompasses several domains including learning theory, computer-based training, online learning, and where mobile technologies are used, m-learning. Accordingly, there are several discrete aspects to describing the intellectual and technical development of educational technology: An educational technologist is someone who is trained in the field of educational technology. Educational technologists try to analyze, design, develop, implement, and evaluate process and tools to enhance learning. Richey defined educational technology as "the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using and managing appropriate technological processes and resources". The Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) denoted instructional technology as "the theory and practice of design, development, utilization, management, and evaluation of processes and resources for learning". As such, educational technology refers to all valid and reliable applied education sciences, such as equipment, as well as processes and procedures that are derived from scientific research, and in a given context may refer to theoretical, algorithmic or heuristic processes: it does not necessarily imply physical technology. Educational technology is the process of integrating technology into education in a positive manner that promotes a more diverse learning environment and a way for students to learn how to use technology as well as their common assignments.

Kentaro Toyama There are no technology shortcuts to good education. For primary and secondary schools that are underperforming or limited in resources, efforts to improve education should focus almost exclusively on better teachers and stronger administrations. Information technology, if used at all, should be targeted for certain, specific uses or limited to well-funded schools whose fundamentals are not in question. (Caveat: Because this article was written for an audience most interested in government-funded primary and secondary education in developing countries, words like “wealthy,” “average,” and “typical” should be read with that context in mind. But, the conclusions are relevant for a broad class of primary and secondary schools in developed countries, as well.) To back these assertions, I’ll draw on four different lines of evidence.
