Putting Pedagogy Before Technology | Doug Woods

Putting Pedagogy Before Technology | Doug Woods:

 "Put pedagogy before technology is a mantra you often come across in the field of education technology. At first, it seems very sensible advice and something which almost all teachers will wish to agree with. However, I feel we should question this mantra and ask ourselves whether it really is good advice.

As a teacher or educationalist, of course your prime concern is pedagogy. You’re concerned with how your learners learn and in providing the best learning opportunities for them. Nowadays, though, technology is intrinsically linked into pedagogy so to ignore educational technology would be wrong. "
