Educational Technology #whatisschool
Join the conversation on #whatisschool this Thursday September 11 at 7PM EDT (Friday 9am AEST, 11am NZT, 7am Singapore) as we discuss educational technology and its place in our classrooms.
As we race towards graduating our first classes of digital natives into a workforce that is evolving as quickly as technology; educators find themselves excited, confused, determined and frustrated as they try to infuse their curriculum with technology and teaching methods that will provide students with the skills they will need. It is no longer a question of should we add technology, it’s an obligation that comes with giving students their best chance of success. So what technology should you be adding, taking away or ignoring all together? For the next two weeks #whatisschool will explore the evolving role of technology in classrooms and how it’s changing the way we teach, think and interact.
