Mr. McClung's reflection
In Mr. McClung's post I realized why I have been against technology in the classroom, selfishness. I have been thinking of myself instead of thinking of what may be best for the students learning experience. Randy Pausch helped change my mind and Mr. McClung's post helped me realize why I thought the way I did. Many teachers do the same things I did and think of their personal learning ways and not the students. Some students may still be paper and pencil students but in today's technological society most people use technology to live everyday life, this doesn't stop when the students get to school. Students use the technology outside of school so why not have them learn subject material using the resources they already understand, whether you understand it or not.
