The response argues that, while newer technologies will impact on distance education, they will not be the panacea suggested by Pelton. The response also points out that not all "new" technologies are interactive or "two-way": but they will impact on both existing and new distance teaching institutions. However, if interactivity is to be maintained, this will be mainly for courses with relatively low numbers for many developing countries. Print-base courses will remain essential, both for economic and quality reasons. Of teachers and technology - Education. VSTE - Virginia Society for Technology in Education. Future of Technology in Education — A ULCC Event. The False Promise of Classroom Technology. The cover story of Life magazine on Oct. 16 was “U.S.

To avoid getting bogged down in this terminological debate, this book uses CSCL as a designation in its own right, leaving open to interpretation precisely what words it stands for. The authors talk a great deal about the theory underlying their work.
