Most times there is not a lot of direction as to what to teach in a Middle School Computer class. Today, technology is more vital than ever in education and the adults are often not as familiar as the kids. The students are known as “Digital Natives” meaning that they grew up with the technology. This is an odd situation that the students often know more than the teacher. Embrace it! Through class discussions, your class can become a great opportunity for learning. Not all students use technology the same way, explore this through class discussions and see where it takes you. Isn’t that what learning is all about anyway? Imagine a world without high-steaks testing. One where students and teachers are free to explore learning in its purest form. The joy of learning is the biggest incentive for any human not achieving some sort of grade. Grades are essentially meaningless anyway. Make your class about the learning and not about the grade.
