Technology in perspective

Technology has no claim to superiority by divine right. Rhod Gilbert is a well known Welsh comedian who has played in the Comedy Roadshow and the Edinburgh Comedy Festival . His way of looking at electronic toothbrushes is probably how we should all be questioning technology and gadgets. If they are not value added in an educational sense then we need to question their value in our life. Is technology improving what we do? Is it taking what we do to a higher level? Is it challenging us to improve our thinking? Our skills? Our knowledge? E-ticketing has been a great addition to the world because it streamlines everything and makes it so easy. Video learning has been a great addition to personalised learning because with a one minute video you can learn something quickly. With a five minute video you can master a technique or concept. With a video course you can know so much more than you did before you started it. That is if they are well thought out and well constructed. It took me 5 minutes online last night to help someone out who couldn’t think their way through something. Not because they were stupid but because they were anxious. It was just chance I was online at the same time and our paths crossed.That, though, is one of the gifts of current technology.  In 2016 technology can bridge so many gaps if it’s done right. It can lift people up. That’s education. It’s deliberate and well thought out.
