Pedagogy must be treated as experimental science and as such
1. It should be constantly evolving and never stagnant;
2. It should be open to new ideas and approaches;
3. It should be constantly tested and evaluated;
4. It should be flexible and adaptable;
5. It should be grounded inbound research.
Unfortunately, today the fields of pedagogy is stuck in an endless loop of thought fixation, in which what exists is right and should not be changed. This loop is the result of a lack of imagination, and it is something that we must change if we want to secure a path for sustainable and resilient growth of intellect.
The availability of technological tools offers a unique opportunity to challenge the existing narratives of pedagogy.
Over the years, pedagogical narratives have been constructed with the belief that technology should be used in a particular way to support a particular pedagogical approach based on learning theories. These theories of learning have been passed down from previous generations of teachers, who were trained in traditional learning models of behaviorism and cognitivism. It is essential to understand why we are using technology in this way. Emerging technologies give us the ability to revolutionize our existing pedagogical approaches. These technologies provide a powerful platform for educators to challenge the existing approaches to pedagogy and education.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to the potential of technology in the fields of Pedagogy and education. The results can be truly groundbreaking, encouraging creativity and collaboration among students and educators. Taking a more personalized and individualized approach to education. Empowering students to take control of their learning and encouraging students to think critically about the world around them.
