Need to discuss ethics and literacy alongside technology


As our reliance of technology in the industry and day-to-day life increases, the need to know how these things work and how these advancements affect us as a community becomes more mandatory.

One one hand you have students that only are able to operate technology on a surface level who can do all of their work on their phones, yet don’t know how or where to access files if they need to be transferred or the consequences of what they post on the Internet. On the other hand you have tech-savvy students carelessly plagiarizing work, operating on the concept that they have the right do do it because there is currently no tangible way to suffer consequences, regardless of how their actions affect others.

It’s not enough that we’re heralding technology to be a wonder-tool that allows students to learn and be creative easier than before, students also need to be taught how these developments shape our culture and civilization and how it affects them.

I agree that we can better support students' learning and digital lives in the long term if we bring a critical lens to our uses of technology for learning. Have you looked into the work that Civics of Technology is doing?

I think you might be interested in their ideas about technology integration and their lesson ideas for how we can help students become more informed consumers/users of tech.
