So I see you rolling your eyes. I know, I know... I hate it when people use the "T word" as just a blanket statement intended to mean "computery things that young kids are hip to already". And there's been a backlash against initiatives to "bring technology into the classroom" because teachers don't like it when we're told what tools we should be using. And to an extent, we're justified. Any teacher who's been around over the last decade has definitely witnessed some hella bad trainwrecks when some directive from on high comes into their classrooms and dictates what newfangled tech fad teachers must immediately adopt in order to stay within district compliance. On top of the insult of being told how to do our jobs, many teachers are also creatures of habit. Once we figure out how we like to teach things, we're pretty reluctant to change our ways. But hey, if you want to be great at your job, you gotta keep with the times and strive to learn new ways to teach effectively. My engineering mindset tells me that no matter how effective my teaching is, isn't there always room for improvement?
Try, try again!
