One simple way of understanding our ed-tech pedagogical theory is that we don’t want computing devices to just become replacements for notebooks and textbooks. We want them to be objects to think with. We want students to use them to construct understanding, to demonstrate their learning within their courses of study, and to mess around with.
In workshops and presentations, we frequently get asked: “What can the iPad/Chromebook/Surface actually do?” We encourage folks to use a different language, one that positions people as actors rather than technology. What can a teacher do with an iPad/Chromebook/Surface? Even more importantly, what can our students do?
