A New Job…

OK, I’ve been reading through additional comments on my demand that we stop using the “T” word. ..and it occurred to me,

Why don’t we just tell all the teacher to find another job.

Now I do not mean to quit teaching and go take another job. Instead, we ask teachers to go to the want-ads or what ever, and to try to find a job that they would like to do, other than teaching, that they would be qualified for. If they are not qualified for the job, then they should itemize the qualifications they would need, to get the job, and then plan out how they might gain those qualifications — without going back to school.

In other words,

How do we learn to teach ourselves in the new information environment.

Once they figure this out, then they may figure out how to integrate technology into the classroom, by integrating contemporary literacy into the classroom.
