Learning Technology & Tech Observations by Dr. Helen Teague

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ July 24

“The word ‘technology’ gets put out there as if computers and technology are synonymous. Whereas, a different technology in my classroom might be handing out whiteboards and giving students erasable pens. That’s a tremendous technology, because it engages them. I see the results. I can check for understanding. And, in part, the students can see each other responding. That’s the big piece missing from distance learning. I’ve heard it said that we’re using a system that’s 100 years old, putting a bunch of students in a classroom,” Sampson added. “And yes, of course that’s true. But once it’s taken away, we realize what an advantage that was.” ~ Paul Sampson, Middle School Spanish teacher in Scotts Valley, California.

“Being explicit about one’s goal of cultivating an inclusive, equitable and fair classroom learning environment reiterated that students and instructors are on the same side, not on somehow opposing sides, of the teaching and learning process” (Tanner, 2013, p. 328).

“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!” ~Patrick Henry,  1736 -1779

“Let’s not just say something. Engage where you must and support the betterment of our communities. Education is a path to leverage opportunity and future options. Let’s do something positive for one another. Let’s support each other. Let’s raise each other’s consciousness. Let’s remember that there is a we in our us and when one of us suffers we all suffer.”        ~Dr. Michael Torrence, President ofMotlow State Community College

“Saying yes to yourself opens up opportunities that can take you anywhere. Having a mentor in your life who says yes to you is also key. Appreciate your mentors when you’re starting out. And later, always give credit to the people who were there with you at the beginning.” ~Phyllis George
