As quipped by theorist John Dewey “If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob children of tomorrow.”
This quote perfectly encapsulates much of the pedagogy and instructional practices within modern classrooms.
As shown in this comic strip, although new technology and resources have been introduced, these resources have not been appropriately used to amplify or transform the learning experience. Instead they have just been used to replace the previous method within the same instructional practice. Therefore, many of these practices can be linked to the concept of a ‘horseless carriage’ where even though the carriage has been altered to include an engine, the efficiency and productivity of the carriage have not been improved.
