Since last class, a number of ideas have come up to my mind. Most of them are about the importance of shifting to teach using technology. Some are about the new literacy and about having these new ways of connecting between teacher and students. How can I as a teacher open the closed doors for me as well as for my students?
I think technology opens the doors for teachers to get promotions and to increase their income as well. Because of being able to give special lessons, teachers can get the benefits of all the advantages of using technology and all that is for free. Also, it is easy to be creative and not be boring anymore. By time, technology will be not just a job but also one’s best friend.
What made me think of all these ideas was the amazing experience of Ms. Kathy Cassidy she was able to shift to teach using social networking. I believe now that teaching by using new tools like Skype can give the opportunity to grow and to be creative. If I am still teaching by the same way with the same people, I won’t have this chance to be a remarkable teacher like Ms. Cassidy.
However, until now, I never have the chance to use Skype as a teaching device. Therefore, my ideas are still not practical. One day I will know if I can apply them all.
