Experts featured in a new e-book say that “the entire educational system is at a tipping point.”
What does that mean?
“Basically,” writes editor David Rogelberg, “everything we know about education changes.”
Cailin Pitcher, product line director for Citrix, says “educators face an almost overwhelming set of challenges” as a result of issues in costs, funding, and how to use mobile technologies and social platforms.
Sponsored by Citrix, the report includes quotes from 35 top education experts that were asked one question:
“What are the most effective uses of technology in online and mobile education?”
Float’s own senior analyst, Dr. Gary Woodill, Ed.D., says in the book that “the most effective use of these new technologies is to provide answers to any questions ‘at the point of need.’”
He says context and social interactions are key to how we learn information, and that “it will be important to forget much of what we acquire to prepare our minds for new information.”
Other experts in this piece include:
Imogen Casebourne, director of learning at Epic
Janet Clarey, managing director, The Guild Academy
Nicholas Provenzano, “The Nerdy Teacher”
Allison Rossett, professor emerita, educational technology
Clark Quinn, executive director
Patti Shank, learning analyst
and many more.
