Integrating technology in your classroom

Teachers are scared to use technology in their classroom, scared for the unknown and too set in their ways.  There is also the myth that technology will take over the teachers place...

Well technology is not there to change or to take over education, but it is a tool to aid education and learning.
We must ask our self:
"What world will our students exit school into? And what skills will they need to be successful?"

  • collaboration
  • communication
  • creativity
  • divergent thinking

We need technology to foster these skills and point our students in the right direction.
Making a mind shift to use technology in your classroom would not only benefit the students, you as teacher, but the environment to.
