Pay Attention

Pay Attention is a video available on youtube that highlights how important it is to utilize technology in classroom instruction due to the fact that today’s students’ lives are so immersed in technology outside of school. Using this background knowledge to effectively teach students during school then becomes paramount. The implication is that not enough of our students are engaged or feel that their school work is valuable. As one high school student states in the video, “When I go to school, I have to ‘power down’.” The point that is made is that today’s learners are digital learners, and these technologies need to be utilized to help the problem of so many students not engaged with their school learning.
