« Are iPads Creating a New Instructional Ecosystem?


Prakash Nair , Founding President, Fielding Nair International
Edutopia, Posted 05/08/2015

Prakash Nair questions the way our education system emphasizes the need for students to pay constant attention to a teacher:

“Are we in crisis because of short attention spans and the losing battle teachers are fighting to keep kids interested in class? Before we answer that, let us look at the word “attention” to see how this important word has been co-opted by the education establishment to represent something completely different than its true meaning.”

Nair posits that attention is not only natural to survival, but it should be directed from a teacher to their students instead. Student’s needs should come first, and their individual styles of learning be honored.
