I seriously think Mine Craft is one of the best tools teacher scan use for students at a young age. It gives kids such a creative way to not only learn but express them
selves. Teachers have slowly started to incorporate more technology into the class room and with this I also think it should make it easier to help students express themselves. There are some many OER’s and programs that kids in today’s world can understand how to run.
I also think its very common in today’s world to be underestimated when it come to technology as younger teens and kids. I have sat in many class were the teach
ers teaching us about the technology is less informed than the students. Which I think is a difficulty in our up coming generations. Many of us are being taught by people who are just learning the same tech ideas we are. The difference is we have been growing u
p with them our whole lives. Where the people we are learning from haven’t so its almost like we are in this awkward period of technical transition and it means theirs less room for creativeness and more just getting into understanding it.
By time we begin to teach in the classrooms technology will be all around us without it even being a thought in our minds. We as the technological generation have a responsibility to keep advancing and creating better and better uses of it. We know it like that back of our hands now it time to start using it to our advantage. We can
experiment with it and see what helps and what doesn’t. Schools are already checking i-pads out to students to do homework on. How long till we use these for one on one help over video chat? How long till we use this technology we have been given to advance our teaching strategies and lesson plans comfortably around technology? Its got to be int he near future right?
I think when it come to the up coming generations if very important to have this in out thoughts. We will have to use it because most of our students will use it daily. The best way to teach students is when they are comfortably and confident in what they are doing. Technology is the future and we need to adjust fast or we will be left behind. I think When it comes down to it its another form of “evolution” and we are right in the middle of it.
