Over past few years technology has revolutionized the world in ways we connect together. We are having amazing tools and resources available just one click away, which give us the opportunity to connect to the people we know, or even do not know but are interested in some aspect of their personality
An Anthropology of YouTube by Michael Wesch
As mentioned in Michael Wesch video, data sharing increases exponentially, we do not need a particular setting to showcase our abilities, but every individual have the opportunities to show case his talent and the stage is all times ready in form of different social networking sites. As in today’s world when holding a regular class hold huge potential risk, virtual classrooms have bridged the gap to great extent. Technology is there to suggest us the solution to our problems providing us multiple ways of doing things.
When I think of a future class, I see resources available to teachers to help them in lesson plans, use technology to teach the students in a way they learn better and assess the children using multiple approaches. Teachers can find many platforms where they can collaborate with education experts, share their experiences and use multiple approaches to help the students in a better way.
I see students having access to different platforms where they can share their experiences and make connections. Along with the bigger opportunity comes the responsibility to use it safely . In my view, students must be taught how to differentiate between personal and public and prioritize their security over blind trust. Students must be made aware of the potential threats and there must be multiple platforms available where students can seek help or ask for guidance. I found a helpful resource about digital security, which I will use in my class to help them make safe interactions. I believe, with appropriate use of technology and using it with responsibility, our children will flourish and reach new milestones.
