I was assigned Will Richardson. #1 blog post WillRichardson Wow! HE had a great blog post about how the colleges and K-12 schools are changing. I couldn't have picked a better blog teacher post to read myself. I am very considered and have many questions about what is happening to the schools. Yes, I think the change is for the best. I didn't think so at first. I was unsure what my role as an educator would be. I now know I am to be the guide as well the teacher of technology.
Will Richardson read a article by Knewton. The article stated that we are to make a precise recommendation on what a student should work on. We are to make a recommendation on the best format. If we do this students will consume technology most effectively. Really? Isn't that what we are trying to get away from? Mr. Richardson questioned it as well. If we as educators did that, then there would be no change in the way we educate our students from the past. Please! I stated that I was hard headed, but I clearly see how I have to use technology as a tool. I am going to be a fool with no job if I don't. But Dr. Strange has taught me to guide not show them how to do their work.
