This Week's Tip: It's not so much WHAT you teach, but HOW you teach
Quite some time ago I wrote about a teacher I had when I was in Year 4 and the impact he had on my interest in computer technology. He pushed the boundaries of what was possible and took us along for the ride. He recently got in touch with me after finding my blog in a Google search. Amazingly enough, he still had a copy of a news article about a special event that we participated in at the National Science and Technology Centre. He scanned it in and emailed it through to me, so I thought I would share it here. (You'll probably need to click on it to make it large enough to see properly!)
My tip for today is to think about the attitudes you are modelling when you teach. How do you model the use of ICT? As a frustration and annoyance? As a tool? As a part of everyday life? As the 'fun' part of the day? How do you want your students to respond to ICT in the future?
