Now is the best time to be a teacher?
That seems to be the consensus; but only from teachers just coming out of grad school. They have had the latest and the greatest of instruction on how to integrate technology. Librarians are also coming out of school with more tech armor for the classroom. But what about the teachers who have been in classroom for the past 15 years and missed the technological wave? What about them? They're still good teachers? Right?
Since I conduct teacher training sessions for technology use in the classroom, I find more senior faculty members very frustrated and resentful that they have to learn a new way of teaching. "Give me the old days!" "This is NOT what I got my Masters for!" I often hear.
Has anyone else come across an ambivalent teacher?
