Teachers – cursed & blessed 

Teachers have so much to do with so little time and technology can either increase or decrease their work load.

Teachers are asked to use technology in the classroom lesson plans to increase engagement of students. And they have to use technology for the administration.

Programs like Excel for class marks and stats – PowerPoint for presentations – Word with tables for lesson plans – Photoshop for designs – video editing – websites to store resources – class blogs – eNewsletters – copyright regulations – sound files – folders – emailing – the list goes on – not to mention the tiny differences between Apple operating systems and Pc’s!

There are so many useful apps that can help with basic literacy & maths – as well as social media awareness and games that can be really useful.

Often older students are glued to their phones or playing games on their computers & this can be soul destroying for a teacher. 

There are many prograns that can assist teachers in their lesson prep to make their lessons & resources easier to create while engaging students. 

And there is the school education systems like SharePoint and Moodle to navigate –  the list goes on – not to forget registering student attendance and marks – when is there time to teach !

As a trained computer teacher I use a free WordPress website to store my teaching resources – so the days of carrying around tons of paper and books are over.

If you are one of these struggling teachers and would need some help  give Zoe at Computer Teacher Sydney a call on 0407 956 071 for one to one help at your pace, place & time specifically to suit your needs.
