Take a look at what Mike Ballard published regarding the future teaching. What do you think about it?
According to the most recent study of teacher demographics by theNational
Center for Educational Statistics (1996), the median age of our teaching population is 44 years old, and the median years of teaching experience is 15 years. This means that at the time of the study, more than half of our teachers had been in teaching since before the IBM Personal Computer’s introduction in 1983. Compare that to the skills and experiences of their students. The students in this year’s high school graduating class (Class of 2001) were born after the introduction of the IBM PC. Thus, none of our K-12 students have ever known a world without personal computers.”
