SLFF Conference in Stockholm
So…. now I have experienced my very first writers conference and met with educational writers from all over Sweden. The lunch-to-lunch event was very well organized with great content and the food was delicious! :)
I had decided to observe and listen, just taking it all in and enjoying myself without any obligations. My plan worked well the second day, but not as well on the first... I have so much experience and I am so interested and engaged in educational and digital development that I find it so difficult to just be quiet... :(
It may have selective hearing or maybe I’m tuned in on negativity or could it be there is a common belief that technology and digital tools have a negative input in a learning environment...? There was only one positive example of how teachers can use iPads in education - but no other positive examples of digitalization, at least none that I am aware of! The theme of the conference was theme: "The textbook in a digital world."
I am starting to think there can be a pattern here… Is there a conflict between using textbooks or digital tools – not both?
I don’t know for a fact but... what do you think?
