Is technology making us smarter?
“I view technology as a socio cultural tool that is reflecting our institutionalised teaching and learning practices. The question if technologies are making us smarter or not? is only interesting if you put it in the context where these technologies are put into use. The challenge in education today is to describe the multiple effects that technology has on our practices.”
Tessy Cerratto Pargman, Associate professor in Human computer interaction at the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences (DSV) at Stockholm University.
Tessy Cerratto Pargman is guest in Crosstalks on #education and #teaching "Get smart: life long learning and relearning" released March 19, at 6 PM CET on crosstalks.tv.
Crosstalks – Where great minds meet!
Crosstalks is an international academic talk show, broadcast once a month by two of Sweden’s top universities – KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University. It is a platform for discussions on global challenges in an open and on-going dialogue with viewers around the world.
