Fall 2016 - Professor Kate Poirier

Respond To Article and Ted Talk Video

I agree with what the article was stating because in the current times of teaching profession now that in the classroom are using technology. In the classroom teachers used to teach students from their own knowledge but now teachers use teachers to help them teach their lesson. Teachers use different educational websites to help them to the lesson and also help the students learn. The article really connects with how teachers are teaching now currently in the different grades.

The video was similar to the article because both were talking about teaching now and also about technology. When watching the video I believe that a school should be named the cloud. A school should be named the cloud because in this day and age technology are becoming more and more advanced than 50 to 60 years ago. Technology helps a teacher from another country help students by teaching them how to speak. Technology is everywhere in the classroom now and helps the teachers with their lessons.

Teachers aren’t using their own knowledge when explaining materials to students but using to help them learn better. I believe that technology in classrooms do help students learn better than a teacher just writing on a chalkboard answering questions. Technology in the classroom is a good way for students to not be behind learning lessons. When technology are adapted into classrooms teachers need to learn how to use computer programs that they are unfamiliar with. Technology in the classroom are a positive way for classrooms and teachers to keep up modern times and teach students the way that students now are able to learn from the technology that they use in their everyday lives.

    Hi Gary. It sounds like you still see a role for the teacher as an educator, not just a facilitator in the classroom. What do you have in mind when you say, “Teachers aren’t using their own knowledge when explaining materials to students but using to help them learn better?”
