Underlining the fact that ICT is not the goal

Here is a little video I wrote a couple of years ago, called ICT is Not the Goal*.

As I wrote in my first post, sometimes technology is still seen as a solution. When really technology is a fantastic set of tools that can be chosen from (or not) depending on the context, subject, student, goals, etc…

The solution? Being present for our learners, demonstrating passion for learning, and providing options for how our learners show us what they know.

Sounds pretty human to me. I like that.

*I wrote it for a project called DevPro, where we look at flipping professional development. You can see other videos (in both English and French) at its YouTube channel here –> DevPro – PD Flipped

I have been teaching and consulting - from primary school through adult education - since 1996. Currently an education consultant with la Commission scolaire de la Seigneurie-des-Mille-Îles in Montreal, Quebec, I believe that sharing our stories is the key to getting better together.
