Teaching is no longer standing and delivering.
The 21st century teacher is now required different skills - and that’s when technology takes part in the picture!

Have a look at this slideshow, if you disagree with making use of technology to teach, if you think you will have more work when you use technology, if you say you have no time for training or if you are technophobic.

Find out the story of two different teachers and their students – One teacher is tech free and the other teacher is completely “E”!

I hope they change your mind!

  • Thanks for your nice comments, Belén & Sergio.
    Feel free to embed and translate my presentation - the point is sharing!
    I'm sure you guys in Spain will improve in terms of embedding technology for teaching and learning. It's a slow process and there are still loads of technophobic teachers out there. Let me know if you need a hand!
    Yeah! It's true! lots of Spanish colleagues writing comments - Love it! Is it because my family background is Portuguese - must be the Iberia brotherhood!!!
