Angående dagens ”kompetens” utveckling

Det spelar ingen roll hur många datorer vi har, hur snabb nätverket är, hur många digitala prov vi gör, eller hur många klasser vi flippar.
Våra elever saknar grundläggande datorkunskaper och det finns ingen strategi för att åtgärda detta. Både Skolverket och kommunen blundar för problemet.

The false promise of tech in schools: Let’s make chagrined admission 2.0

”We’ve already had one round of chagrined admissions. About 10 years ago, the common practice was buying hardware and dropping it into schools: Every student got a laptop, perhaps, or every classroom got a computer-driven whiteboard. Policymakers finally realized that such purchases don’t boost student achievement or create a new generation of programmers.”

”Reading on a screen would seem to be little different than reading on paper. Maybe even better: They can integrate video and audio, for example, and content can be updated easily. But in study after study, reading comprehension is actually a little worse on screens. That’s why even younger readers with lots of screen-based experience say they prefer paper.”
