Nowadays many schools seem to be in a rush in order to going digital or starting innovative projects. Even though I’ve been working as a computer technician for years and I’m a lover of technology, I strongly believe that when we are working with children we all must slow down and think over what we want to do.
Every change we want to carry out in a school must involve planning long-range goals with pupils and training teachers in the beginning.
Some schools got a big break swapping paper-based books for digital ones on tablets, but is that the right way? It’s a matter of fact that pupils are more motivated in front of a tablet because of the fact that there are digital natives but I think that implementing tablets in the classroom should involve a methodological change. Otherwise, we’re just changing a cheap paper-based book for an expensive digital one.
