I haven't been blogging lately due to a close family member passing away but as he would say ' Life goes on so don't stop because of me' so here I am back on board the ICT train.
It's been interesting watching teachers responses to new learning and technology. Some have embraced it, others have been blown away and some have just sat and watched waiting for it to age expecting things to happen as time passes by.
Today was like every other day I spent time organising, working and planning ideas for my next teaching journey but today's encounter was an interesting scenario... so here is the story.
As teachers, we are aware that we have a huge melting pot of children that enter our door each year. They arrive with different walks and talks of life and I guess as a facilitator I to have a huge pot, just with teachers.
We celebrate and embrace the ones that show interest in what to we are passionate about but how do their successes affect those who are unsure, hesitant or unsure.
I have a group of teachers who are very skilled with I.C.T and like to use all the bells and whistles to make things look good, this can at times be off putting for others who are not as confident and today I saw this.
After a long lengthy discussion with some teachers it was heart breaking to see how one little bit of excitement can shattered a persons confident. Yet how do you say to someone that is excited about their learning not to do what they do!
So what are your thoughts?? I would be interested to hear how you would deal with this situation...
