I came across a video “Pay Attention” which was posted on YouTube 6 months ago to motivate teachers to use technology more effectively in their teaching. I found this video interesting, educational, and thought provoking. I think the current technology development such as Web 2.0, social networking, and mobile technology will change the way teachers and students interact and learn.
The video talks about digital natives and the use of Web 2.0 tools in education. The author raises many serious questions. How do your students learn? How can you become a better teacher for educating digital learners? Are you engaging your students? How do we turn our classrooms into learning engines? Why do so many teachers refuse to enter the digital age with their teaching practices? Before watching this video, I suggest that you give some thoughts about these questions and then see whether you agree with the author after watching the presentation.
