'Disruption Is The Business of Educators--Not Educational Technologies'

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Technology is as necessary in schools today as much as the teachers and administrators which technology helps to serve, but who should decide what role technology plays in each school? This session will propose that true educational “disruption” can--and should--come from teacher-led technology initiatives. District and administrative leaders canfoster the desired policy changes by supporting these faculty-led and student-centric technology initiatives. By focusing on the philosophy and process of this model, Matthew will provide a roadmap for creating a “teaching incubator” for new uses of technology, which specifically enhance teaching and learning.

The presentation will also take a critical look at how the Disruptive Innovation Theory is currently being applied in Education. Matthew seeks to engage attendees in asking the question, “How can educators use technologies in the service of teaching and learning, looking beyond the hype of technology solutions, to “disrupt” current educational paradigms while preparing students for the remaining decades of 21st century life?”
