Without a doubt, technology is changing the shape of education around the globe.  But are these changes good or bad for future of learning?  In this video episode of the 10 Minute Teacher, I want to look at both the positive and negative aspects of digital education and then outline some of the important non-negotialbles for Christian educators.

Some of the quotes used in this video are below:

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” ー Aristotle

The ideal of the Liberal Arts Education “grew out of the Greco-Roman ideal of developing the life of the mind in a soul-nurturing relational environment.” ーGary David Stratton

In terms of both instructional and emotional experience, “the learner-instructor interaction is the most critical one to the success of the learning experience.” ーReggie Smith, 
President of the United States Distance Learning Association

“There is a huge qualitative difference between learning about something, which requires only information, and learning from something, which requires that the learner enter into a rich and complex relationship with the subject at hand.” ーLowell Monke,

“The twentieth century was the bankruptcy of the social utopia; the twenty-first will be that of the technological one.” ー Nicholas Taleb

“Scholars who are skeptical of MOOCs warn that the essence of a college education lies in the subtle interplay between students and teachers that cannot be simulated by machines, no matter how sophisticated the programming.” ーNicholas Carr, 
2011 Pulitzer Prize finalist

“Socrates specifically rejected the Sophists’ more distant and “academic” student-teacher relationships, branding them educational mercenaries with little or no concern for the souls of their students. The Socratic method of instruction necessitated intimate relationships in tight-knit learning community.” ーGary David Stratton
