Mrs. Roland's ideas for teachers to change common practice to engage digital natives.

Five ways that a teacher might need to change common practice to engage digital natives:

  1. Come up with fun and engaging lessons that involve technology that the students use every day.
  2. Find new and innovative technologies that you and your class can learn to use together and develop lessons using the new technology.
  3. Move away from the old, boring methods that keep kids in their seats all day with their noses in a book or on a worksheet.
  4. Have students that are confident in their technology skills teach skills to the class.
  5. Once students learn new concepts and skills, have them "re-teach" those skills to their parents via technology as a way to review and reinforce these skills.
