As Technology Resource Teacher I work with teachers to develop lesson and unit plans which integrate educational technologies.
What I really enjoy is helping teachers engage students in learning as they use their digital tools.
“Teachers should strive to bring the classroom into the world of the student. All too often, we force the student into the world of the classroom. Today’s students’ brains are not wired to sit in hard plastic chairs and write with a pen or pencil. No student goes home and takes out a note pad, writes a note to a friend, stuffs it into an envelope with a stamp and puts it in the mail. Students are digital natives and want to use the tools they use every day for their acquisition of knowledge.”
