Class 3: Our Tech Lives

Featured images by the author

In today’s class we will explore the role of technology in our lives – how do we use it, how does it impact us, what works (what doesn’t) and implications for teaching and learning in the digital age.

Students will work in teams to interview one another and distill some answers to our questions. We will work through a consensus building process to develop shared class point of view (POV) on the role of tech in our lives.

We will conclude by discussing how technology impacts teaching and learning.

  1. What is your personal relationship with the technology in your life? Here’s a chance to reflect on a personal level. Are you addicted to social media? Does tech improve your life?

  3. How does technology impact teaching and learning?
  4. Another prompt / approach to explore the role of tech in our lives or schools

And Bingo was his name-O.
B-I-N-G-O!
B-I-N-G-O!
B-I-N-G-O!
And Bingo was his name-O!
