MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I guess the first sign of my inclination to be a teacher was in primary school when I used to help my classmates with their English homework and also mark their tests for our teacher??!! Twenty years later and I am doing the same thing, apart form the fact that I am the English teacher.
Something else is different. I grew up never seeing a computer at school. The overhead projector is the most high tech piece of equipment I remember some of my teachers using, and not all successfully (although it never stopped them from delivering the curriculum, but that is a different discussion point).
My relationship with the computer started when I arrived in the UK in 1992. I completed short course in ICT at school before starting university (1993) and discovering Internet. I remember how proud I was to be able to email someone or use messenger in order to communicate instantaneously with friends abroad.
A decade and a bit later and I spend more time with the computer than I do with many (other) friends. My work life has become dependant on computers that I sometimes despair to what it would be like without them-again???
Most of all, the fact that the world is within my reach and I can invite it into my classroom whenever I want, has given us teachers and students a great although dependant freedom.
