"As educators we must be learners first. If we are to be better educators, we must first be better learners. We may not always have a choice in what we learn. After so long not being involved with learning, many educators do not know how much they do not know. How can they make decisions on what they need to learn, if they are unaware of the existence of many of the things they need to know?" This applies to the use of technology in teaching: how can we facilitate students in using social media in learning if we don't engage with them first, in our everyday learning practice?
