I Need My Teachers to Learn - 1 views

  • a new song and video about the need to teachers to change their methods to meet the needs of today's students.
  •  
    From the song:
    "Prepare us for our future, and not your past."

    I want to show this video to the folks at my institution who resist using technology in their teaching. Preparing students for their future includes preparing them to be able to pick up and learn new technologies quickly. It's not the technology itself that students need to learn - what's current today will be obsolete in a few years; it's the willingness and ability to learn a new one as needed.
  •  
    You are right, Carol. This is becoming a vital issue--teachers have never been noted for eagerness ti change, but without use of technology, we are not only not reaching more students, but we are, in too many cases, negating possible education. The students, too, must step up to current technological changes and feel comfortable with where they are headed.

    This is an web-based authoring tool that allows one to create an interactive lesson, and export it as a SCORM 2004 or SCORM 1.2 object which can be imported into a LMS. One can add a variety of media such as voice, text, video, and still images. One can also import a PowerPoint presentation. An interesting feature is that one can intersperse assessment screens to check student learning. Assessments can be graded or non-graded.
