Furthermore, we attend conferences, get technical support, and do pro-d sessions, from different parts of the world. I wonder if we and our students will benefit from this kind of learning. Yes, I think so. We shouldn’t conduct our classroom quietly anymore.
What makes a well rounded teacher? Just his/her personality, curriculum, pedagogy and practice? No, technology must be included in teacher's daily work. Let see, which one is better? To use a laptop or paper and pencil; see math problems in 3D instead of doing odd problems; access the most dynamic information rather than printing and photocopying it; select your own learning styles in place of teacher’s favourite learning styles; collaborate with peers around the world rather just with your classroom peers.
Up to now, I can’t teach without technology in consequence of Blogging is learning by sharing with each other, helping others learn, and keeping everyone connected even outside of school/university. In addition, as we know, technology could fail and things could move very slowly. However, the benefits are more meaningful, I mean, students will edit, link, seek, comment, question, and socialize MORE in order to be reflective and challenge each other seeing the opportunities rather than the obstacles.
