Do you want to be Techy or Relevant?
I have had so many people tell me over the last several years that I am Techy teacher. I usually nod my head and say thank you, but when I reflect on that statement I say my kids(students) have called me to be that way. The first week we were back when Matt Gomez was speaking to us he said "the kids in your classroom are your boss." The kids that are sitting in your classroom right now are digital natives, they live in a very connected and techy world. If we want to reach them and teach them we have to change the way we are and become more relevant. We have to become more "techy!"
"Kids are techy. Kids are relevant. Kids speak the language. Kids see the possibilities.
They want us to be! They need us to be! They deserve us to be! It’s the world they live in and whether we like it or not, it’s the world WE live in too!
Instead of calling us “techy”, we really wish people would just call us RELEVANT! We didn’t know how to do all these things either when we got started. But we saw a need, a way to connect, a reason to learn, and we took action." A. Welcome (2015, Sept. 7) We're Really Not That Techy #KidsDeserveIt Retrieved from http://goo.gl/99VRtR
