Teachers, Throw Away the Old Playbook
Staying Traditional While Heading for the Future
Straying away from the traditional ways of teaching is not something that is easy or comfortable for a lot of people. It may not seem logical to change tradition, but in education things are always changing and that is how we grow as teachers and get our students to grow as learners. If we are constantly learning, then the students will be too. By incorporating technology in the classroom, we are giving students a chance to learn to their full potential.
Actively Engaging in Learning Through Technology
Traditional Methods vs. Technology
There are benefits to teaching the traditional way because you can ensure that students will not play during the lesson on the tool that they are supposed to be learning with. But, if a teacher is just lecturing and not using all of their available resources, the student is not getting the opportunities they deserve.
- In this video below you can see how students are actively participating in the lesson because they are using technology.

It has been shown that students who were not very motivated in the classroom without technology were noticeably more motivated when they were able to use technology. It has effected students in positive ways and makes them want to learn. In order to be good teachers, we need to put the students first. So, if we are keeping the students motivated, that will keep up motivated as well.
