What does it mean to use technology in the classroom?
I think a lot of times in the classroom students are just watching technology and not engaged in actually using the technology. We need to allow them to explore with technology and integrate it into their everyday work so that they become life long learners with technology. We don’t know what is going to be created 30 years from now. This means that we as teachers have to continually be learning. We need to keep up-to-date with technology and not be afraid of taking risks. We should be open to learning alongside students and allow our students to take risks and take risks with them!
We should integrate technology into our class that will help benefit our students in the future. We should use technology within curriculum areas to improve learning in whatever way is appropriate.
How can we do this? I think I am learning a starting point through my ECMP 455 class!
