Welcome to the world of tomorrow. Technology today is so advanced and amazing, it’s difficult to even grasp what is happening all around us. One of the interesting aspects of this wonderful digital revolution is that it was built by incredible people who once went to school as children. The World Wide Web and the internet; computers; laptops; smartphones and many other devices are the result of a great Education.
The astonishing technology that is with us now, that we all seem to be taking for granted, is returning the favor to the very Education systems from which it was born. The students of yesterday have learned. They took the ABC’s and 123’s; Reading, Writing and Arithmetic that was hammered into their little pea brains, and they flourished. Technology has embraced Education all around the world, or perhaps vise-versa, and the results are ground-breaking.
More and more schools and Education systems are utilizing the existing technology of today and adapting it to the time honored methods of teaching for the new generations. The innovations and applications of ClassDojo have set the stage for the future of Education. The merger of technology and Education is more than just a hybrid, it is a promising birth of a new way of teaching, and again, the very people developing this new system and this new technology were little elementary tots like we all were. Imagine what the tots of today will be creating in the future. This binary boom may indeed have increased the speed of evolution itself. Think of that.
Technology is not replacing traditional teaching. Some things in life are simply natural. Teaching our young will always be personal and professional, done by qualified people who love to teach. However, one can’t teach with love alone. Having the right tools for any job is, of course, how things have always been done, and always will be done. The better tools are here now. It has been said that “if you build a better mouse trap, the world will beat a path to your door.” the better tools for teaching are now being built and provided to the great teachers of the world, and connectivity is the crux of this brilliant software solution.
A gap has been filled between teacher and parent and student, with software and technology. Again, the very technicians and developers who are providing these digital tools are themselves, fine examples of an Education system that didn’t have such advantages, therefore, it is pretty safe to project that the young students of today are going to benefit in immeasurable ways. It is an exciting time to be an educator.
Though we all only ever learn throughout our lives, in the beginning, young minds need all the help they can get. They are little sponges with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, and now a streamlined technology is in the mix, adding focus and connectivity to the entire process. Let the teaching begin.
