As far as technology is concerned in education, we’re standing on ground that’s shifting, and we might as well get used to it.
Learning management systems are being created and changing at incredible speeds. Tools such as Google Apps for Education and Adobe’s Creative Cloud need to be learned by educators, even as they evolve. The necessary skills for bringing value to a school site are growing, which is uncomfortable. No one knows everything, but it’s important to try to learn as much as possible.
It should be noted that the information won’t come in tiny sips of water. If you start researching how to develop skills, it’ll feel like you accidentally opened a fire hydrant as the resources hit you like a blast of water. This is the same feeling everyone gets.
Work hard, don’t give up, and amazing things will happen.
