Technology and Learning

I have to agree with Jeff on this topic.  Technology both acts as a facilitator of learning and content to be learned by the students.  On a number of different occasions, we have all used technology within our instruction to assist in the lesson’s activities of conveying information to students.  Within the classroom, it acts as a tool to create documents and presentations and as a gateway to the rest of the world.

Depsite its role in assisting instruction, technology has been considered a way for students to learn all about it through their experiences with it.  Whenever a new program is introduced to anyone, they know very little about it and sometimes struggling with adapting to its new look.  Case and point, Microsoft Vista is a fairly new operating system that has flaws many do not approve of and are not afraid to share their disgust with others.  However, over time and with a great number of experience we will begin to develop our skills with it to the point of mastery, forgetting about the growing pains at the genesis of its creation.  The same thing has repeated over and over again with other OS programs like Windows XP, Windows 2000, 1998, 1995, etc.

Technology serves multiple roles in learning as the facilitator and as the teacher, in a sense, of new knowledge.
