I was a little stuck for blog ideas so I scrolled through the news feed in hope of finding something that would catch my eye. Alysha’s latest post did exactly that! She posted a link to this video. The video tells the story of several experienced teachers writing letters to themselves on the first day of teaching. Being just one week out from prac, it’s wonderfully reassuring!!
We might be feeling pretty overwhelmed at the thought of implementing ICT’s for quality learning experiences. One man in the video provided great advice. Try everything!! Even if you think it is utterly crazy. In the end these are the things your students will remember.
If your plans don’t go so well. Remember teaching isn’t an exact science. Seek help, talk to your mentor or other students and try again the next day.
As prac teachers we have the ability to make a big difference in these students lives. We are making lasting impacts and may even give our mentors some great ideas on new ways they can incorporate ICT’s!
