    Dude! I was just going to borrow Bill’s slide to post on my blog. Are you reading my mind somehow? This was such a great graphic, he totally nailed it with this.

    Sometimes a graphic rings so true it makes you shout, YES! Fantastic catch and share! Thanks George, and thanks Bill,

    I am not sure I fully agree. I think technology is also a great tool to reach curricular outcomes within a specific discipline, and prezis can be a great way to demonstrate knowledge and communicate, as are flip charts to learn information so that they can use it in a meaningful way at another time. I don’t think the definitions are confused but rather the definition is more broad and inclusive than this picture would lead you to believe. I think both sides are the right answer depending on the learning objectives that are estabilished for the curriculum.

  5. TOTALLY agree with this! And it’s exactly the type of innovation that we’re bringing to both students and their parents thru SKoolAide. We’re 8 for 8 on the list…the Right one that is.

    LOVE THIS LIST!!! When I create lessons for my tech classes I always ask – what skills are they using to create this “document” — because for me (the tech coordinator) the “document” is NOT the lesson — the thought processes involved ARE!!!

    Awesome find George, thanks! I will be using this in several areas – this sums up adaptive vs embedded use of technology beautifully.

  8. Hmmm… I think sometimes technology HAS to be a learning outcome. Learning to print, handwrite, use a calculator… students did not learn these skills by osmosis, why should we expect them to become adept at using particular tech tools all by themselves? Sometimes this happens, often it does not. I have seen enough bad PowerPoints (and Photo Stories and… insert name of tool) to be able to say confidently that sometimes we do need to “teach the tool”.

    I think I agree with the overall sentiment though… if the only things we are doing are from the left side, if students are not moving beyond the tool to accomplish the deeper learning and thinking on the right, well that’s a problem. But never looking at how to use the tools we have in a sophisticated, effective way can also be a problem.
