  • 9. Students are different
    The brain changes and organizes itself differently based on the inputs it receives
    from “Do They Really Think Differently?” by Marc Prensky
    People are changing and developing themselves depending on the needs they have in their life. Students are living in a different world than the one digital immigrants were in. Students have changed because they are always using new technologies. This is similar to the way our ancestors developed languages for their communication out of necessity.
  • 10. Instructional Technology in the Classroom
    Students today are different. It doesn’t mean they can not learn , or that we can not teach.
    They have preferences for learning , so if the method teachers use match their style of learning, they could learn more effectively.
    My teaching
    As a teacher, we should be flexible and adaptable. I would try different types of technology in my class and find out what teaching style matches with my students. Also I would pay attention to what is going on in our society today and keep myself updated because I think education is influenced by society.
