Some food for thought as we take a well-deserved break. Here is a little taste:
This means that teachers can have a profound effect on whether their students embrace technology, in the classroom and beyond. The way that teachers present technology skills will also affect what kinds of technological thinkers their students become. Teaching coding as a stand-alone skill is a great way to train future computer programmers. Integrating technology into other subject areas such as history, English and the arts will teach students to use creative, technology-based problem solving skills in many areas. Both are great skills to have.
We often write about how technology can help teachers, but sometimes it’s useful to take a step back and consider how teachers influence technology.
