How have your explorations of technology and blended learning make you a better educator? I think it has made me a better educator because as an educator I believe it is essential to continuously stay abreast of the new forms of technology that can have an impact on classroom experiences. Technology is an integral part of our society. Technology is no longer a luxury. It has become mainstreamed. It is essential in today’s workforce to be technologically literate. Thus, we as teachers must be equipped to prepare our students for the modern workforce they will be entering as they venture into their adult lives.
