In reading the “Free Technology for Teachers” blog by Mr. Byrne today he posted a link to a quiz called How Millennial Are You? This got me to thinking, like his posts normally do. That all teachers need to consider how they relate to the current generation. Knowing your students hobbies, beliefs, current technologies they use and how they communicate is the key to being able to develop lessons and projects that will be successful in your classroom. Ignoring it and just driving on with what you have done for the past 10-25 years is much like an ostrich sticking their head in the sand. All of us remember those teacher that taught outdated lessons and we remember the disconnect that occurred in those classes. Take this quiz and then take a moment to consider what it really means? Then consider how do you relate to your students? The results may surprise you. I know it did me!
