As I have had the opportunity to attend the GaETC over the past couple of days, I am reminded that today’s K-12 learners are VERY different from the type of learner that I was. We, ‘older learners,’ are prone to say,’Well, it was good enough for me to learn that (traditional) way, and look how good I turned out.’ Ok. I am not sure that is a good thing in some cases, but I digress.

In order to reach today’s learner we must use today’s tools. As this powerful video portrays, Shift Happens. Incorporating technology into instructional practice is as essential to today’s learner as paper and pencil. It is NOT optional.

So, shift happens…have you??
