The relationship between education and technology has always been an interesting one. Technology companies have long made the claim that their products and innovations offer the answers to many, if not all, of the problems within the educational community. Of course, leaders in education quickly adopted such technologies only to have high hopes fade away as things fail to work the way they expect.
The prospect of making money is certainly a driving factor for educational technology companies. Perhaps equally motivating for the educational community is the opportunity to solve issues with one purchase. So why, then, does this relationship seem to fall short of success so often?
Those of us in the online educational realm are often caught in the middle of needing to use the adopted technology and trying to maximize its positive educational impact. Instructional designers, educators, and students could all benefit from a more collaborative approach between the technology companies and the educational community.
Dan Schwartz, the new Dean of the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University, offers valuable insight into this topic. His experience advising educational powerhouses like Leapfrog and Pearson have given him a unique perspective. He recently did a Q & A session with Rachel Hamburg of edSurge, in which he described this relationship as struggling because “there’s not enough expertise on learning; there’s more expertise on business.”
Will educational technology companies work with learning experts to finally start having a more symbiotic relationship with the educational community? Or are we destined to continue watching this clumsy dance that seems to be missing several key steps?
