My teaching philosophy has always been to teach kids to have a love for learning (whether it involved technology or not). However, I don’t want students to be limited in their learning either. Utilizing technology, along with 21st Century skills, will open students’ horizons and change their way of viewing the world around them along with how they think and learn. I want students to look around and wonder. I want them to ask questions… and more questions. I want them to collaborate with the person next to them and with another student from half-way around the world. I want them to see a problem and think deeply and critically about how to solve it. Then I want them to do it again and again and continue to find different solutions. I want them to be divergent thinkers. I want them to be adaptable. Technology is consistently changing. Jobs that haven’t even been invented yet will be theirs for the taking. I want them to be able to adapt to anything that comes their way. Alvin Toffler said, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” I want to teach them that it is okay for something to be unlearned and relearned. I want them to be creative. I want them to build with Legos or computer programs… or both. I want to share my love and passion for finding what is interesting and new, and enlighten them to keep learning.
