New things are scary (and awesome (and scary))

by mathsispoetic

I got a teaching job for next year. Yay! Awesome! …At a school which is doing its best to go paperless(!) Ipads for Years 7 and 8, netbooks for Years 9 and up. As a maths and science teacher who loves innovation, this is fantastic. As somebody who will holds on dearly to her belief that she does her best work with a pen and paper in her hands, this is a little bit intimidating. So I thought I might post a series of linked posts exploring what a ‘paperless classroom’ will mean for me next year, with an emphasis on magpie-ing some shiny bits and pieces from other people’s views and experiences.
