Thanks to Amanda Middleton’s post I have learnt about another technology that could be used in the classroom to save time and enhance learning. Check out Amanda’s blog to find out more. ActivExpression looks like a great motivational tool to help teachers as we experience more and more off task behaviours. I welcome new technological devices we need all the help we can get when it comes to engaging students.
It is going to be interesting to see how long it takes for new technologies to be implemented in the classroom. As I have been progressing through this course my daughter is learning how to work with the same technology I am.
I envisage myself working alongside my daughter to operate and learn new technologies as they become available. The idea that teacher is facilitator, in the middle learning together with our students is an exciting prospect as we develop good relationships with our students as join us in becoming life long learners.
