When Your Student Isn’t Online, You’re Getting the Wrong Education
I was a math teacher for years.
My students loved to learn, but I was one of the few teachers who didn’t have a mobile classroom.
So when the iPad came along, I thought, Oh my gosh, I can do this!
And so I started to build out my iPad classroom, and the next thing I knew, I had three iPads teaching students, and that was it.
Now that I’ve had the iPad for four years, I’ve learned a lot about online learning and I’ve seen the value in online teachers.
My student feedback and feedback from my students has been fantastic.
I think that teachers are much more likely to see their students as people, and not just students.
That has been a big thing for me.
There are a lot of kids that have a problem understanding the difference between a word and a phrase and how they should spell words.
I have a lot more experience teaching them and they’re learning more quickly.
What they need is the support of their peers, which I have the support.
But I think the most important thing for them is to know that there’s a teacher around.
I do have a mentor, and it’s an old school-type relationship.
I’ve never had to deal with someone like that before.
When I think about it, there are so many kids who are struggling and need someone to tell them, ‘Look, there’s somebody here who can teach you something.’
I’ve noticed that when you have someone like me around, the kids really like me.
I love teaching, but when I have someone to listen to, the students love me.
It’s a real partnership.
