The Nerdy Teacher: Pedagogical Identities for a Digital Age
Hull, Glynda; Scott, John; Higgs, Jennifer
Phi Delta Kappan, v95 n7 p55-60 Apr 2014
Professional learning around digital media often focuses on tool use and neglects consideration of teachers as interested, creative producers of digital media artifacts. The best way to help teachers learn about and adapt technology in their classrooms is by immersing them in hands-on work in the same way their students use social networks and other technology applications. Within this article, the authors provide tips on things everyone should know about K-12 students' views on digital learning tools that can provide opportunities for building communities with common purposes and relationships.
