Technology Keeping Up
I remember when I was a elementary school teacher and a computer was placed in my room. It was a new toy and I had to learn how to utilize it along with classroom instruciton. Now if you are not able to keep up with technology, it is very diffcult to remain in the classroom. Working at Brookline has made me use technology more than my normal comfort zone but it has made me a much better instructor.
I remember the beginning of the smart boards; I used to work in adult education teaching ESOL, and I did not want to be in a classroom that did not have it, I found the class boring.
