But what does this continuing growth in education technology mean for teachers?
While many teachers are excited by technology and interested in the ways in which they can use it to enhance their teaching, others are concerned by its rapid development and wonder whether they themselves could eventually be replaced.
Whilst technology is able to take on a whole host of tasks, it does have its shortcomings – most prominently its inability to interact with humans.
Technology can therefore facilitate the learning process but it cannot replace the role of the teacher.
You might want to stress skills like communication, critical thinking and organization, as well as any specific experience that will help distinguish you from the competition.
The following is an example of a cover letter for a teaching position, as well as a sample teaching resume.
At Kognity, we realise that promoting the use of technology in the classroom is only possible by coordinating effectively with teachers.
As our CEO, Hugo Wernhoff, notes, “We’re not only in it to offer flexibility in time and place for students, or lower costs for providers.
As Vivienne Collinson points out in a for the College of Education at Michigan State University, “Computers do not teach children to question, to discriminate among sources of information, to weigh perspectives, to think about consequences, to bring contextual meaning to a situation, to be creative, or to make careful judgments.” Teachers impart students with life skills, valuable life lessons and inspire them to reach their potential.
A teacher is so much more than a facilitator: they are also a guide and a mentor.
