Teaching with Technology This Summer?

Are you teaching with technology this summer?  What are you using?  Are you experimenting with anything new?   How is it working for you?   Do your students seem to enjoy learning with these new technologies?  Are they excited about coming to your class?  Do they know you are learning to use them together?  Have they given you or their classmates a hand with any of these new technologies yet?  Do you recognize them for this?  Are you modeling patience and tolerance with your own learning and willingness to try new things?   Have you shared your excitement of learning  these new skills with any of your colleagues?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, congratulations! You and your students are probably have a great summer teaching and learning together…as it should be in adult ESL!.

“The teachers who get “burned out” are not the ones who are constantly learning, which can be exhilarating, but those who feel they must stay in control and ahead of the students at all times.”  Frank Smith

May you continue to have an exhilarating summer!
