Technology Is Here

Scott McLeod, Dangerously Irrelevant, posted this quote in a recent blog entry:

Technology will never replace teachers.

However, teachers who know how to use technology effectively to help their students connect and collaborate together will replace those who do not.

Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach

While technology is an effective way to engage students in the classroom, learning technology tools is also preparing students for the future. I do believe that the teachers who incorporate technology into their curriculum more effectively will replace those that do not. Not only will their students be learning about their content area, but also about Microsoft Office tools, Web2.0 tools, effective use of the internet and other tools that these students will use throughout their careers in the future.

A post every educator should read follows this same strand and also won an EduBlogs award for most influential post last year.

It's one from Karl Fisch and what's truly powerful is not simply the message in the post but the comments and conversation that ensue.

A must read!
