My New Perspective“Teachers will no longer be providers of information but instead wouldbe the explainers, the context providers, the meaning makers, andevaluators” (Prensky, 2008) NEW IDEAS • No longer will my lessons be lecture based, but hands on and have applications to real life. • My classes will change from whole group to one on one learning. • Students will have more input on designing instruction. • Lesson plans need to be engaging and gameplay • Cooperative learning is key. • School does not end at the end of the school day.
