Transferable Skills

One of the key components of using technology in classroom from my post on Lesson 2.1 was that using technology allows for collaboration and corporation.

In most (if not all) video cases, group work was consistent no matter the type of technology being used.  May that have been the “shop” class, graphing calculators, using motion tracking software, making podcasts, or even slomations.

For me, it was the transferable skills that really emerged from the video cases like being literate in technology, being comfortable with using technology, working together to solve problems: skills that professionals use every day.

The interesting point made by some of the teachers was the difference in how male and female students used technology that I didn’t really expect.

How might these differences in use of technology impact student learning?  It would be great to have some feedback from my peers.

Thanks
