                                 WEEK 4
                              Redifining the Human
Once more I am  late for writing my blog  this week  and  I have just finished   watching  the  final activities before the course  ends.  However, I have my ideas about the different conditions of   human and non-human creatures. 
HUMAN  BEINGS  ARE  DIFFERENT. Continue reading

#edcmooc BEING HUMAN- REASSERTING THE HUMAN

                                                                      WEEK   3
                 #edcmooc   BEING HUMAN
                   REASSERTING THE HUMAN
Interesting videos: human beings  are different  from machines and  robots  and they share the features of  belonging to a special group, they have  feelings. They love, they suffer, they are afraid and  are not like a machine. I feel that technology is a tool, it can  facilitate the life of men but at the same time  it is not  the only part of the life of a man. Continue reading

#edcmooc  

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

I am a bit late so  I am  just  watching the  videos which  the University professors have chosen for this  week.
Education will change, technology and new devices will help students to learn and work both at school and at home. We have seen these interesting videos which make me  understand that this future  has just  begun somewhere but  in other parts of the world we still have the old  blackboard and pens and pencils:

and also  OUR  LIFE IS GOING TO CHANGE   


BUT ……………………………… Continue reading

INTO THE PAST

                               

#edcmooc        WEEK 1 


                                      INTO THE  PAST 
   I remember reading  Asimov’s  science fiction short story  ” The fun they had” and how I felt: the children  must have   felt lonely when they had to work on their own and worked on a machine and there was no school and no teachers!! I was only a student  at that time  but  today as  a teacher I like to read this short story with my students  because it describes today’s world in education in some way and I like them to think about the main differences between now and  the time I went to school forty years ago. Yet, I feel technology can be positive. Continue reading
