Technology and me

It’s one of the reasons I left teaching. Admittedly, at 73 I’m low-tech in
everything, but what I did was observe how teachers used technology and I
not only did not see anything particularly useful in terms of input for
acquisition, I saw technology as a way for some teachers to avoid messy
direct, personal contact with students, dropping the mask, so to speak.
Interacting with students reveals a lot about the teacher to the students
and people uncomfortable with that find technology a buffer and a blessing.
