Scott McLeod, director of UCEA Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education (CASTLE) at Iowa State, offers ten ways to get serious about educational technology.
I like two ideas in particular: showing students how to manage privacy settings on Facebook (and other social network sites) and addressing the digital divide. Taking on those issues is be a learning advocate rather than a technology advocate. In my view, the learning advocate takes seriously both learning with and learning about technology.
What are your ideas for taking educational technology seriously?
