This is going to be a short post but I felt that it was one that warranted it’s own post. After reading through the blogs and articles provided by Dean I felt a sort of pressure to delve in head first to the opportunites that technology allows educators to be involved in. I say the word pressure in a good way. The pressure I felt, was more of a I don’t know where to start kind of pressure.
I did not realize the impact that blogging could have on the world of education. A question I was left with was, how do we as teachers sift through all the information out there and decide what/who to follow? How do I as a new teacher, in my first teaching job effectively implement technology, all the while ensuring that I am meeting the needs of my students and dealing with the pressures of being a first time teacher? This question scares me but this is definitely something that I am willing to take on and learn from the experience.
Does anyone else struggle with this part of integrating technology into the classroom? I would be very interested to hear from you and how maybe you overcame the fear of where to start and how to start.
