Tridigital Learning

"Just What Is It?"

Until today, I have not heard of the term "Tridigital Learning." So after conducting a little research, I found a common thread as to what the meaning is. Triditionl Learning is the process of creating a balance between the past, the present, and the future. This is especially relavent when it comes to teaching and using technology.

The Chain

Linking The Old, The Present, and The Future Together.

Think of Tridigital Learning as links in a chain. When they are combined, they are very strong. When all or one is broken, then they are weak. I mentioned earlier that I am on board with this concept. Here is my philosophy on Tridigital Learning. Students should be required to learn their multiplication tables even though there is technology present to do it for them. A strong foundation must be established first before we depend on technology to do everything for us.

In the present, use the tools that are available to assist us. It’s there for just that reason. There are many ways students learn. But with the help of technology, we can touch those areas more easily than we could 10 or 20 years ago.

The future is going to be very exciting. Things that we are considering now may be possible in the next 5 to 10 years. I say this because of this. Martin Cooper created the first successful cell phone in 1973. He got the idea of the cell phone from Star Trek. A T.V. show that was on air for three years in the late 60’s. The idea was there but the technology needed time to catch up.
