Introducing new technologies in schools is a considerably difficult decision to implement. They are numerous factors to consider when introducing new devices and new software and web 2.0 tools. Depending on the learning abilities of the school's students, the curriculum delivered, network capabilities and much, much more, schools are required to differentiate their digital learning platforms based on various requirements that differs from one another greatly. It is for this reason that explains why expert teachers from across the nation are forced to deliver varying and unique pedagogical strategies to deliver identical content achieving identical learning outcomes.
This weekend, I met 37 other amazing, inspirational and dedicated educators whom are dedicated in increasing the technological knowledge and skills of their students. Together we are working towards creating new collaborative opportunities for our students by introducing and reinforcing Microsoft tools such as Office 365 and other Microsoft based apps. Using browser based software that are supported by Microsoft will not only provide students with additional learning opportunities but also provide them with new ways to collaborate. Further, it will encourage our students to collaborate with students from other schools, which will ultimately lead to creating a global classroom. This is the global classroom that all teachers are working towards attaining in one way or another by using 21st century learning tools and other teaching and learning resources.
I will continue to share my journey with Microsoft as a Microsoft Expert Educator and showcase the work that I and my students are practicing so that, you and your classroom can improve your overall learning.
