Tom Whitby is someone else I am learning is worth listening to.  His latest blog post has this really good paragraph in it.

Now let us consider the objective of our teaching. I always thought I was preparing my students to be able to think and learn in their world, for that is where and when they will live. I am not teaching them to live in the 1940’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s as I did. God I am getting old. The choice of technology as a teaching tool is no longer mine to make. My choice is how best to use it. Look around! Computers are everywhere. Computers that run our cars are probably more functional than those which were used to send men to the moon. I am not so arrogant to think that I can offer a student all he/she needs to know based on what I know.

Lots of wisdom there.  I will continue following…


  1. Thanks for noticing. I was beginning to feel overlooked.

  2. Great wisdom!
