As a teacher, my learning never stops. Overwhelming? Sometimes. Exciting? Always!
Blogging in Education,
I agree with much of the stuff on the video but how do we allocate time to that when people like Schmoker advocate for more time to be spent reading and writing. Would he find value in this type of reading or writing or does it ahve to be in books and on paper?
Wow. Cool video. Now, however, I am overwhelmed. I use tech in the classroom (Lang Arts), but there's a lot I do not know. It would be awesome to be able to utilize all the digital tech that seems to be available. The problem, however, is not just my ignorance, but the lack of tech in our school.With Pride and Prejudice last semester, the students set up a dating profile for one of the characters. They loved that!
Very informative video presentation. Makes you think about how fast the world is moving.
I value students using technology, but I worry that they overuse it and over-rely on it. I want students to be engaged in technology, as is the video's message, but I also believe kids should be engaged in paper formats of learning in addition to technological formats. It seems that the 21st century learner needs to be well versed and interested in both, not just media and technology.
In order to use technology, students need to be able to read and think critically.
Intimidating. Scary. Exciting. How to mentally move forward when I stand in pool that is already up to my neck and confront a new torrent of change?Yet... ignoring all that... what an exciting opportunity to incorporate a dynamic new means to engage students. What's the point of teaching if it isn't sticking in a meaningful way?
I thought the video was right on the money. The students really need teachers to teach them how to succeed in the next centurary. That means that teachers need more technology training in order to pass on their knowledge to the students. The best idea I recieved from the video was the fact that we know what we are in for so we can begin to prepare.
I think the video is right on. The problem is creating the attitude change in Jefferson County.
Wow!!! we are in a new age. It is interesting that we are moving into a new way of teaching and learning.
It's impossible to allow students to digitally create in a system with little to no technology available! If I had my own computer lab, my students would use it each and every day!
I'm torn! Open for comment, open to complain, open to intent, but open to contaminate........
Very powerful, especially for Pomona High School. I honestly believe the statistics shown in the video are even more skewed for our staff, but will start to change after today. Do we have the technology to support growth?
Wow!!! What does the future hold for the young generation? How can the older generation keep up with all this new information?
Interesting video regarding the importance of using technology in helping students learn.
