Are you paying attention?

I was on Edmodo earlier and Ryan Correia posted this video, entitled "Pay Attention". This video is a little dated, but the same message holds true still today.

Are we really paying attention to what our students need from us in the classroom? Even if our schools have gone to 1:1 computing, will it make a difference unless we change how we teach as well?

Too many times teachers adopt new technology and teach the same way they did before. That is not an effective use of technology. We need to give teachers the time, training, and support they need so that they can fully utilize the technology to enhance and support the learning that occurs in the classroom. Are you paying attention?
