I Wasn’t Born For The Internet, But They Were

born-for-the-internet

Sometimes I feel like a real dinosaur world would that seems so natural to my students.  While I have to work hard to learn each new type of technology, they do it seemingly without giving it a thought.

I’ve come to realize that understanding technology is a new type of literacy.  We used to focus on the 3Rs, reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithmetic.  Students today  understand a new literacy… Digital Literacy.  I truly believe that it will be as important to their future to be Digitally Literate as it was in my generation to be literate with the written word.

But as teachers like to remind students, just because something doesn’t come easily or naturally, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t work hard to gain that skill.

So I’m working hard………. 🙂
