As the youngest teacher at this school, I am having a hard time communicating the need for more technology in the classroom. It seems the more I use it or push for it, the more the other teachers avoid me or think less of me. I have learned that the students actually learn more and better using technologies then just from a book and writing a paper. I get frustrated when the other teachers look down on me for trying new things.
As the “Students Come First” laws begin to really take affect, I believe that the impact will be for the better. Teachers will be held to a higher standard and students will be able to get the technologies needed to succeed in such a technological world.
This evaluation helped me take a closer look at the ACET standards and where all this fits in. This covers Standard 1.3, 2.3, 2.4, 3.3, 3.4, 4.4, and 5.3, 5.4. I fell that most of the standards are covered in some way depending on how you look at the survey and summary.
