Media and teaching

5 Mar

I truly believe that as instructors must change with technology and encourage learners to learn. They are the internet generation, and they want to use it. Technology has rushed by and has left me in the dust, and if I open my mind and learn with my learners, we will both learn how to master social media.. Life-long learning?
