The article, 'But I don't want to Teach my Students How to Use Technology' by Trent Batson discusses the importances and reasons for teachers to acknowledge the technology innovation occuring in our world today. I agree with the article that this technology innovation has drastically changed the world we live in and continues to change the way we view and percieve many aspects of life. Even if teachers themselves avoid using technology their students do not necessairly and it is important that teachers are aware of how to use technology with their students because it is an intricate part of their world and to ignore this fact is to ignore the world around us. Teachers need to think about the best way to reach out, teach, and relate to their students which includes using technology.
As I look at the word cloud formed from the script of why I want to be a teacher I notice several words that stand out. The word 'people' is the largest word on my word cloud. I did not realized I used this word the most, but people is the reason for my excitment of going into education because this career involves working with people and this is what I believe life is about. The other words that stand out are students, teacher, and history which did not suprise me because these words are part of my digital storytelling project.
