New Age Teachers

Teaching the Future

The Time for Change is Now!

The times of teachers lecturing on and on for hours at a time is coming to an end, if it hasn't already ended. You go to nearly all college lecture halls and you will commonly see more students with laptops out instead of notebooks. You will see more students looking down at their cell phones or talking to friends than looking up at the teacher or paying attention to what is being taught. Why you ask? Because lectures are boring. No student wants to sit and listen to a teacher ramble on about things they do not care a bout. Students today need something to keep them entertained, something they can interact with. You are starting to see more and more K-12 schools and even some smaller colleges go 1:1 with laptops and even iPads.


You know the students know how to use the technology, but now it is up for the teachers to learn. Teachers who refuse to learn the new technologies being used in today's classroom are doing a huge disservice to the student. By not knowing how to use technology in the classroom then as a teacher you do not know your students. Edutopia.com explains great reason for why teacher need to learn how to use technology. In the Technology Integration page it says that technology also changes the way teachers teach, offering educators effective ways to reach different types of learners and assess student understanding through multiple means. It also enhances the relationship between teacher and student. When technology is effectively integrated into subject areas, teachers grow into roles of adviser, content expert, and coach. Technology helps make teaching and learning more meaningful and fun.
