As stated in a previous post, this year I became a Technology Coach after 16 years of being in the classroom as a Middle Years teacher. Although I feel quite comfortable in the digital world and using digital tools in the classroom, I am still finding transitioning to my new position to be somewhat of a tsunamic wave of information. In the last 2 weeks I've been teaching myself (as well as asking a ridiculous amount of questions of our IT staff) on how to trouble shoot through issues in Office 365 and Screenbeam devices. I've also had to explore curricular connections of apps in the new tablet devices from Kindergarten to High school. It seems like the more I learn, the more I realize that I don't really know very much about what's out there.
I'm starting to wonder if life would be more simple if we were digitally ignorant?? Although I love the doors that technology opens... it kind of leaves me thinking... is technology opening too many doors?
Ah... I shouldn't sound so pessimistic... Maybe I'm just juggling lots in my head.
