We have technology in our classrooms and we need to live with it and make the most of it. Avoiding it will not work because the world is changing. The inner circle of the knowledgeable used to bring enlightenment to those without knowledge. Now we all need to work together to develop new knowledge and ideas because there are so many ways in which knowledge can be discovered and delivered. Technology is about uniting disparate elements into a purpose- built, functional , creative , collaborative endeavour. We need to enjoy technology :
1.Don’t cling on to what you know. Keep sharing and moving.
2.Hone your skills. Get really good at what you like
3.Check settings and preferences on sites and software.
4.Don’t whinge. Find the work arounds.
5.Be enthusiastic about your discoveries but don’t expect others to do what you are doing.
6.Don’t criticise how others use technology. We all have our own way.
7.Don’t try to impress – just enjoy what you are doing
8.Don’t be scared – click, tap, scroll, change.
9.On a bad tech day- control what you can, keep the flow and change medium
10.Don’t blame the tools.
