Technology and Change: It's good for business, is it good enough for education?

The notion that education prepares you for the rest of your life is flawed. Rather, education helps you develop the lifelong learning skills that will help you to be responsive to change as it happens.

It might be argued that, public confidence in higher education has been declining steadily as the gap between the 'relevance' seen (by students, communities, and commerce) between what students are being prepared for and the lives they are going to live.

I wanted to ask the question (perhaps a little controversial)

Are tertiary institutions innovative (something several claim to be) or are they simply doing the same things they have been doing for years, just using different tools?
Are we preparing students to be ethical, able participants in communities - online and face-to-face?

  2. 2. A challenge The world is not moving faster than previous decades. Its moving slower than many of them. We are not the most innovative generation in history. We may be the most trivial, the most boring. Thats not good enough. Time to accelerate.

An example Ruru has just accessed the instructions for his next assignment, which is a paper that focuses on analysing architectural sites, discussing a hypothetical development, which demonstrates, for example how to ensure the environmental sustainability of the project. It is a group project, and the members of his group have been nominated by the e-facilitator in advance. Image can be located at:http://www.flickr.com/photos/paulwatson/5070828/

  26. 26. “We cannot predict the future, but we do sense that we have the power to shape it. So we need to take time to reflect: on what those possible futures are, which are the more desirable, and what it takes to realise them.” (Laurillard, in Norris, Mason, Lefrere, 2003, p. III)Image can be located at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/maurymccown/2289537070/
  27. 27. And if we have time... • What fundamental changes are being made in our educational system to handle the doubling of knowledge every seven years? • What provisions for access & accessibility is your institution putting in place? • What are the implications of truly embedding education technology into curricula? • How would institutions benefit from more direct involvement from the community, iwi, & Pacific leaders in helping design education technology enhanced curricula?(Adapted from Hooker, 1997, The transformation of higher education)
