iTeach: The best 1:1 device is good teaching

iTeach: The best 1:1 device is good teaching | immersive media | Scoop.it

The best device a school can roll out is a teacher who can adapt to new and emerging technologies, does not always require formal training for learning and staying current, and is not tethered to a product in order to teach.

Sue Osborne's curator insight, May 26, 2013 10:19 PM

Yes yes yes!  Why do many teacher-librarians persist in demanding that their PD always take place during school hours? If you want to develop YOURSELF professionally, shouldn't you be taking every opportunity you can afford? If you can read a tabloid in your own time, you can find time to read a professional journal too - simple things can make a huge difference! Manage your own professional development, don't expect your school or your union to do it for you! Good teachers and librarians are learning all the time, and sharing their learning - with colleagues and with students.

I love the comments about professional development not always being done in school hours. If it's worth doing, it's worth doing. Period.

Teachers are the rock stars in the class room...but great rock stars need instruments to create music.
