Are we failing our Students?

14 Mar

I watched this video through the EDC 3100 Diigo group and was very much confronted with the fact that we are living in a digital age, and we therefore need to be providing students with the opportunity to engage in these. Not using ICT’s in the classroom is like expecting a person to eat meat for lunch at school, even though they are a vegetarian for breakfast and lunch at home. Students are surrounded and immersed in technology, and by not providing it for them at school, we are living under a rock. Chances are, the children I teach in the classroom, will be more able to use technology then myself. We owe it to these children to give them every chance they can to become autonomous, lifelong learners!
