Another poem written as a reward for a donation to my GoFundMe Campaign to get to #unplgud12. This one is for Jarrod Robinson who wanted a poem that could be a discussion starter for teachers in technology workshops. Jarrod, I hope this starts some conversations for you! Thank you for your donation.
Technology Does Not Fit
“Technology does not fit, there’s no place I can see
to let it get in amongst my students and me
but I’m told it’s handy, it can change what we do
really, I just want to see the year through”
Ah, you old fool, we sit there and say
you’d better catch up or you’ll lose your way
and the students, well, they will know you’re out of touch
but does that really matter to you all that much?
If it doesn’t then you’ve definitely missed a bit
of what it takes to really make connections that fit
Take on this challenge and don’t be so stressed
and embrace what could have you teaching at your best.
