S2 PT5 – How Tech-Savvy are You?

Aim of the activity

Follow edutech trends and become a digitally literate teacher.

Try something new

Sometimes we are unwilling to try new technologies at our lessons, but it is a great opportunity to follow the trends and involve students into learning process. Here’s some motivation: watch this TED talk. Before watching grab a marker and then follow the speaker’s instructions. If you don’t have time, just complete 3-4 cartoons.

How was it? Do you still think you can’t learn anything new?

Now let’s learn something else:

Step One

Write down your insights on the video. Clue – if we say we cannot do something, it might be just an illusion.
