There has been a lot of hype in the last few years about this 'social media' phenomenon - blogs, wikis, Twitter, and the like. Techno-utopianists tell us that these new democratizing tools will change everything we know about education and learning. Many critics take an opposing narrative and see many of these tools as simply glitzier forms of old practice. So what should educators believe? This interactive presentation is meant to deconstruct some of the big questions regarding technology and its use in teaching & learning. What practices are here to stay? What will disappear? What will be different about schools in the years ahead? And, what do we need to do as teachers, educators, and parents to create the best learning environments for our children?
