Excerpt:

Students who can use social media, web tools, video, and audio to research, collaborate, and explore in teamwork tasks, to problem-solve, communicate clearly, and critically think are only going to enhance their employability. It is an honour to be teaching at a time of educational technological revolution and it is our responsibility to work with our learners to find the tools that allow them to develop these skills.

Here are some tools that have worked for me and are fun, easy to use, and free.

3 Must-Know Tips For Anyone Nervous About EdTech - Edudemic

3 Must-Know Tips For Anyone Nervous About EdTech - Edudemic | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it
Dear “Nervous To Try Something New With EdTech”: You know when you spoke with me the other day and told me that that introducing more tech into my class was fine for me because I was ‘into it’ and ‘understood’ it? That you were not going to try a new way of doing things (edtech-wise) …

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, April 23, 2014 1:41 AM

I've done edtech training for nervous teachers since the days of the Apple ll and the  Commodore 64. Some things never change.  I think it's not so much the fear of tech as it is the fear of losing control of a class when the tech fails (as it always will).  


The cure? Perhaps being flexible enough to have multiple fall back positions when the tech crashes and accepting the role of teacher as learner as you learn the ropes along with your students.
