Technology and Assessment
With the increase of technology, students have assess to limitless information. Teachers are expected to use technology in their instruction and many have moved away from the use of textbooks in the classroom. When technology like chrome books and Google classroom are used to student assessment, how can teachers ensure the depth of knowledge of student learning, and avoid students simply hitting copy and paste to create products or to rely too heavily on available content to mask their true level of learning?

The beauty of the internet is that while students can copy and paste, you can too! Simply copy and paste their work into Google and you can check for plagiarism instantly! I caught 3 students last year, one who copied an entire timeline and attempted to pass it off as her own.

The incredible increase in access to information that modern society offers has certainly changed an educational emphasis from content knowledge to content application. Students no longer need to possess massive amounts of content specific information because that information can be looked up at the drop of a hat. Instead, learners must be able to find reliable information, analyze connections, and cite texts accurately. Assessments technologically based or otherwise, must adapt to meet these changing educational needs.

Technology should be used as a tool to be used in collaboration of the learning process, not THE tool used. I think we are placing too much emphasis on the use of technology in our classrooms. One downfall of the technology boom is that we are graduating students with little communication skills. Employers see this, and it is a big topic when we have Advisory Meetings with industry leaders.
