Old School Teaching
No doubt, as a teacher you have wrestled with knowing which lessons are best taught “old school”. Sometimes it’s just quicker and easier to pick up a piece of chalk (well okay, an expo marker) and create a visual.
As a technology integrator, the conflict reminds me of the struggle between ranchers and the onset of motorized transportation and we all know how that ended. Technology and good old fashioned teaching can work together but it requires some give and take from all sides.
