A balance between past, present, and future
Practice and promote digital inclusion.
Integrate technology into every area of the learning community, including curriculum delivery, community collaboration, office support, content creation, and sharing content and assessments.
Generate innovative education practices and new models for learning.
Create an environment that engages all learning community members and helps to inspire passionate, personal responsibility for learning.
For me the first bullet point is especially important as we live in a increasing digital world we need to provide students an opportunity to interact with that digital world in a way that prepares them to function effectively in one. However, in all of this I believe that traditional methods should not be forgotten for certain things traditional methods work best for certain students and after all the great thing about technology is that it better allows students the opportunity to interact in a way that works best for them and that should not be taken away from students who learn best in traditional ways. In conclusion I believe that in order to improve and move education forward it is essential to find a balance of past, present, and future in learning practices, particularly the balance that fits your individual students best
