When fourth grade rolled around it was like being run over by a bus.  Everything went from learning to read, to reading to learn. All my instructions were now written in paragraph form.  There were no clues to help me navigate this new world. I went from being an explorer to just trying to survive each day at school.

The happy child that loved coming to school slowly changed to the frustrated child that hated education. I see this all the time now when students face adversity and I also see with teachers who are overwhelmed by technology. When the teacher that has been teaching for years without technology is now thrust into a new world where every kid has a computer.

How can we help teachers not feel like a child lost in translation? My name is “Jorge” is about embracing who we are and look at the struggles we have in teaching as chances to grow. Come watch, listen and finally embrace “Who we are” all the while using technology as our common language.
