“If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.”
- John Dewey
It is a new week, a new day and a relatively new year for our students. As teachers lets break out of our natural way of teaching and teach our students something new and interesting. Don’t stick to the boring lesson plans you’ve used day in and day out. Do something new, fun and wild! If we can engage our students today, tomorrow they’ll be able to conquer the world!
Let’s go get ‘em!
The use of the textbook and the white board as the only learning and teaching tools is now considered a thing of the past. Today people can access information and learning from a variety of resources including micro technology e.g. video annotations. Students at school come connected to the world with devices in pocket ready to go, as educators we need to be part of that world, understand it, embrace it and use it to our advantage. Educators are therefore encouraged to be innovative and create online learning platforms to enable learners to access information 24/7 to be creators in the wide world. This kind of approach to learning and teaching promotes a culture of lifelong learning.
