Digital Literacy – Teaching will never be the same
I taught an adult religion class for about ten years. I really enjoyed it. I worked very hard on each lesson I delivered. But there was one aspect of teaching that I just didn't like. If a particular lesson got a lot of positive feedback, I worried about the next lesson being just as good (or better). I put a lot of pressure on myself. I competed with myself week after week and felt every time had to be better than the last. I knew in my head I was far too critical of my own work. The proof was in the retention of the number of learners that attended every lesson. I prepared each lesson very thoroughly with plenty of examples and current events to support what I taught. I kept to the plan and followed the structure of the lesson, and the lesson worked every time.
