Quote

Nothing pleases…

5 Jun

Nothing pleases people more than to go on thinking what they have always thought, and at the same time imagine that they are thinking something new and daring: it combines the advantage of security and the delight of adventure.- T S Elliot

This quote was placed on the Week 15 learning path on reflecting on Professional Experience. As I finish up the assignment and course material for EDC 3100, I wonder if I am engaging in what this quote is saying: am I thinking the same thing, but making myself believe that it is new and daring? Am I being self-decieved? Through reflecting, I think the answer is in my last blog post entitled Professional Experience Reflection. I said that ICT’s were great, but what about those who don’t have access to them. Have I missed the whole point of the course. I think I need to adjust my schema. ICT’s NEED to be integrated into teaching, and it is my job as a teacher to ensure that happens. There is no choice, no buts, no maybe’s. ICT’s will soon become the make or break of teaching. I want to MAKE IT.
