Unfortunately we find that what happens the most, especially in schools is that educators and administrators tend to shy away from this responsibility and limit their teaching to the way they have been taught, thus excluding all the elements that are now pronouncing us as digital citizens in a society.

In the digital world we are human beings -free of the  many artificial restrictions and other special interest agendas and use our free will to engage our ideas and actions. It is natural - people can chose who they want to communicate with  It is a positive MOOC of that will expand the world into a new age of freedom and abundance .

  You could use a voice recording app to record a clip to share with your students, use camera to take pictures for classroom projects, take videos to share with students, always make sure you have a set of downloaded PDFs or eBooks to read when there is no connectivity, write and save memos, and write a blog post for your class and save it till you are plugged and share it on your classroom blog for your students to use.

 

Being able to use technology for these items listed abovewould be a great idea because they are very useful.This would be easier for students and teachers and a good way to learn more about technology.
