Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #87
Another interesting read: Parents are Digital Hypocrites.
This made me consider what I do as a teacher with so much technology. How can I rant at my kids to get off their devices, when if I have a spare moment in class, I’m meandering over to my MacBook Air.
How can I tell kids to not check their emails, when I look up in anticipation as soon as I hear that ding from First Class. I once had a student meekly inform me that “Every time I hear that ding, the teacher practically runs to his desk.” He was telling me nothing new.
How can I tell them to get off Youtube when some of my College Comp 2 kids were going around interviewing teachers about a topic when they saw one former colleague watching Netflix!
How can I tell my students to remain life long learners if I’m not reading and writing and learning every single day too?
