“[Learners] want more technology in the classrooms. That’s how they learn. They don’t learn like we did when we were growing up…getting lectures. We did it and that was fine, but the kids today want the technology, the visual support, the kinesthetic learning.”
When a school reaches this conclusion, but the teachers don’t feel comfortable using technology in the classroom, what do they do? The solution is simple: let the learners teach teachers how to use technology! This suggestion was made in a recent posting on this blog, but can it work?
It worked in a school in Hereford in Texas, where teachers and learners swapped roles for a day. Are you willing to give it a try in your school?
