One of my teachers who is an administrative intern this year came to me today after school and lamented on the fact that after reading books like Disrupting Class, and Teaching Digital Natives and Outliers there is nothing he can do to fix the issues being just one teacher.
This is why we are striving to do things we have never done before. We are trying to connect with students in new ways and trying to make teaching so much more than standing in the front of the room.
You know, the issue he pointed out was a problem to me as well because you can't go back to the way things were before you learned about the way things could be. It makes you strive forward and try new things.
