The term ‘digital native’ has received wide publicity, most notably in the argument for the use of new technology in the classroom. Yet its relevance can’t be ignored. Young people - those that have grown up with access to smart devices, touch screens and wireless connectivity - have an expectancy to consume information in this way. Why should learning be any different? The question is, however, are we as teachers ready for the significant changes this involves?
For many, the answer is yes, but for others the prospect of integration of smart technologies can be a daunting challenge.
LearnersCloud have announced the launch of their new blog Insights from the Cloud - designed for teachers and teaching professionals who want to share their experiences and learn best-practice techniques from those that have ‘been there and done that’.
This unique self-help community has flourished since its launch, and they hope you can join them as it grows into an essential advice-sharing site for teachers. Visit: Insights from the Cloud.
