More on our amazing community later. I want to share a quick story.
During class yesterday, we were discussing the benefit of online quizzes and games for concepts like grammar. I like to talk about "back in the olden days of teaching" (my hyperbole for having taught forever). As I'm rambling on about how quickly students can get feedback with online quizzes, versus the old-time way, a student raised his hand and said, "So, really, the olden days of teaching were just a few months ago."
Yup. That's why this blog. Holy cow what a few months of change means now. I'm just so excited to be a teacher, now, more than ever.
And, as you can see, our noses aren't buried in our technology. We're talking, learning, growing together. And that student who realized the exponential factor of the leap from the olden days till now, well. Can't you just see how fun it is to be a teacher?
Up next: I have not done a single thing I promised, so I'll just say that up next will be a topic that may or may not be connected to technology, teaching, community or love.
