Mark Benn reflects on what education is about, how technologies have changed how students are interacting both in the classroom and beyond. He looks at the video of children in Singapore schools where children are using a range of technologies including Facebook and Second Life to explore learning.
All teachers want to see their students engaged in the learning process, the problem is that our old teaching model doesn’t work with the digital age student. We need to prepare them (the students) for their future, not our past. This is the responsibility for all of us.
