I have recently had an opportunity to take part in a fantastic conference and workshops for teachers, which was devoted to innovative teaching methods. I’ve learnt a lot of new things, met dozens of fantastic passionate teachers. But what’s most important – the conference has confirmed my belief that innovation is the future of education.There has been more and more technology in Polish schools, which I am really happy about. Some traditionalists or – let’s say it – conservatives try to fight it. However, I am quite sure this process is unstoppable. I’m not trying to say traditional methods and paper books are passé and useless, but I do believe modern schools must blend the tradition and technology.
Some people fear that this rapid development of technology will make teachers useless one day. It’s not that I am so conceited and feeling irreplaceable as a teacher, but to be honest I don’t think it’s going to happen. At least not in the upcoming decades. I’d rather support the view presented in the meme below:
