This post is for an online class I am taking through Wilkes University.
“Compose a first post that reflects your initial thoughts about the ways in which you see the Read/Write Web affecting your practice and your classroom.”
I see the Read/Write Web as the catalyst for educational reform. I personally see our current form of education outdated and inefficient in meeting the needs of today’s learners. I have been teaching at the 4th grade elementary level for 4 years. I know I am new to the field but, how can we continue to use the same philosophies and paradigms from 50+ years ago.
I see the Read Write Web being able to open doors for individualizations, collaboration, creation, and production. I see the use of such tech tools as resources for students to create meaningful learning for themselves and their community. I want to learn how to fluidly integrate such technologies for the benefit of my students. I don’t want to be the teacher at the front of the classroom. I want to be the guide and facilitator of individual learning and interest. I can see this change in my students with the pieces that I do integrate technology.
