Whenever I hear educators complain that students “waste time playing online” my blood boils. I know countless learners who harness the power of the digital realm in inspiring ways. Whether it be to acquire new understandings, hone a desired skill, or to share their own creativity to an authentic audience, if today’s teacher doesn’t embrace the amazing opportunities afforded by today’s technologies they’re doing their students a disservice.
Case in point, check out The Academic (ironic, no? I didn’t plan that) as they poke and prod with Facebook Live with this looped track. I tell ya, today’s youth are something special.
Make your Monday meaningful y’all.
