How will we teach tomorrow?
How will we teach tomorrow? We know that technology is changing – becoming smaller, more powerful, more portable – and cheaper. The new technology is becoming the ordinary. We see that learning can now occur anywhere – no need for a typical classroom, desk, tables or even chairs. What took time to locate in a library is now accessible as fast as a set of keystrokes on a keyboard. Learners want to know NOW what they need – not too much, not too little. Technology is changing us, and we are changing how, where, when and why technology is being used. Stop and think, we have access to more information than ever before. The change won’t occur in three years, it is occurring now – before our very eyes, and right in the palms of our hands. How will we teach tomorrow? There will always be questions needing answers, problems to be solved – there will always be people. The unknown – technology – the known people. People will be here tomorrow. Are we ready?
