'Teachers must embrace new technology or risk becoming obsolete'

'Teachers must embrace new technology or risk becoming obsolete' | Affordable Learning | Scoop.it

'In the past I have always said that a computer could never replace a teacher, because learning was based on relationships. Today, I am not so sure' 


One undeniable fact about teaching is that teachers not only need to be masters of content within their subject area, but they must also be masters of education as a subject. Another undeniable fact is that neither of those subject areas looks the same as when any teacher first mastered them.

One effect of the integration of technology into our society is that change in almost everything is happening at a pace never before experienced by mankind. As much as some people may yearn for the simpler times of the past, life will continue to move forward as the natural order of society requires.

As a developing teacher, there are lots of courses you can do and resources that you can access to aid your development, but when you become a teacher of teachers, this often isn't the case. Feedback especially, is an area in which the door is often literally and metaphorically closed and you get little feedback yourself on this area of practice.
