What is Tech in the Classroom?
I had a co-worker ask me this question. I was a little surprised because I think the teacher does use technology in the classroom, but still didn’t know what it was? Tech in the classroom can be any number of things. It could be the teacher using PowerPoint, or Prezi or a video to teach a point. It could mean students doing papers on Google Doc or present with PowerPoint or Prezi. It could mean that students are researching online or creating a video. I think teachers need to model, but more importantly students need to create. There is a great quote I read somewhere: “Learning isn’t consumption, it is creation.” Find was to get tech in the classroom so all have access to it and let the students lead us to new ideas.
