EXPLOITING THE WOW FACTOR TOENHANCE TEACHING PRACTICE The WOW factor is very much underrated when attempting to engage people in educational technology. I was always hearingyou cant let the technology lead, and yet all my most exciting moments, and those I observed in others, were when that it is exactly what we did - we followed the technology FOR ITS OWN SAKE and discovered wonderful things! 4. THE PALACE (1997) 5. Andrew DouchYr 12 Biology Teacher 6. THEORIES ABOUT TECHNOLOGY1. Technological determinism: technology is an external agent that acts upon people and changes society.2. Social construction of technology (SCOT): it is human decisions and processes that create the technologies we have, and that the prevailing social milieu has an influential role in the decisions we make about how we use that technology.3. A middle ground between people and machine is the theory of Social Shaping. Nancy Baym refers to technologies having logics that influence how we use them. Nicholas Carr calls them ethics: the message that a tool or medium transmits into the minds and culture of its users 7. We shape our toolsand thereafter ourtools shape us.(McLuhan) 8.

Organisations will need to adapt to the fact that web 2.0 citizens willenter places of work and learning highly connected to a network ofpeers that they rely on for entertainment, mutual learning, andcollaboration. They may expect to be able to make use of these personallearning and social networks, and the technologies that make thesenetworks possible, in their places of work or study. These web 2.0citizens operate in a world that is open and mobile, and they are unlikelyto accept authority that is automatically assigned to a position. Theirworld is flat and devoid of hierarchy. In a world where information abouttheir areas of interest or expertise is increasing exponentially they willplace greater store on connected networks, which may extend beyondclassroom or workplace boundaries, and knowing where to get theknowledge and information they need, is more important than havingthat knowledge and information themselves.[email protected]/1345266896/ 46.
