Why Illiterate Educators?

Why Illiterate Educators? | freeman edu204 | Scoop.it
When it comes to an understanding of the term “literacy” most people understand it as the ability to read and write in an effort to communicate, understand and learn. That has been the accepted und...

 

A literate educator in the 20th Century is not the same as a literate educator in the 21st Century. Our education system is loaded with many 20th Century holdovers. Most are great people, and good teachers, but they are illiterate in 21st Century terms. We need not cast them aside.

 

They are valuable and revered sources and educators. We need to support them with methods to upgrade their literacies. It must be a priority.

Rachel Solomon's curator insight, December 3, 2013 1:45 PM

I think this is a really good article because it is written by a teacher, and he explains certain pieces of technology that "changed his teaching practice." This article could be very helpful to current teachers, as well as aspiring ones. Technology is very important now in our society and is becoming increasingly important in the classroom. It is important for teachers to know how to utilize all of these different pieces of technology.
