About mid-way through a multimedia project I'm asking myself why I'm using old teaching methods with new technologies. It's like I'm afraid to change the bath water. There's something comforting about the Johnson's Baby Soap that makes me want to stick with it. I'm a bit frightened to switch it out for something a bit more relevant to my students. I wondering if this need to stick with traditional instruction methods stunts creativity. No one wants to be creative. Everyone wants to take the path of least resistance. I'm breeding this like mosquitoes in my classroom. Why? I'm thinking my pedogogy needs to change.
Here are three important factors to remember when incorporating technology into Learning:
1. Using technology in the classroom is a mindset, not a skill-set.
2. It’s not about the technology, it’s about the pedagogy.
3. We need to learn with technology the way students live with technology.
