During my day I am a Special Education Teacher. I have been teaching in the high school environment specializing in LIFE SKILLS. I love working with students with cognitive disabilities as they work toward being a more independent adult.
Ron Smith Interview: Use Any Method to Reach Students
I chose to listen to Ron Smiths interview because the title struck my eye. Ron said that using digital methods of teaching is very front end loaded. I have certainly have found that out during this EMDT program. Just think what it takes to make a 2 minute video, that is informing and interesting. Ron said that teachers often feel that a "Power Point" is thinking out of the box. Power point by itself is very blah, at least now that I see it through EMDT eyes. I hope I can challenge my staff to learn more and think out of the box as they teach.
