“Education technology is not, and never will be, transformative on its own… computers cannot replace teachers – teachers are the key to whether technology is used appropriately and effectively.”
Carlson & Gadio, 2002, p.199
Upon reflecting on this quote, I realised the significance of ICTs in my pedagogy. Considering that we live in a technologically driven age and that our responsibility as educators is to prepare our learners for life within our society – as teachers, it is fundamental that we use ICTs appropriately and effectively in our pedagogy.
Here is a link to the presentation Why Teach With ICTs? , where I discovered this quote, if you are interested.
Yours in ICT
