As trainee teachers I think we all aspire to make a positive contribution to children’s lives. We want children to learn from us, make progress and be inspired by our outstanding teaching! But, perhaps most importantly, we want children in our classrooms to be happy and safe.
Here I am, writing a blog post reflecting on today’s lecture about learning in the digital age. Quite simply I am having first-hand experience of using technology to communicate with peers, evaluate and discuss. Had I thought too much about the use of technology in learning before today? Honestly not really, but the lecture has made me question its use, whether it has a positive or negative influence on learning and planning when best to use it in lessons.
