3. Model Digital-Age Work and Learning

There is an expectation to students that a math teacher knows math or a science teacher knows science. If we want to incorporate technology into education there needs to be that same expectation. In order to be able to be comfortable with and be able to teach something we as teachers need to be able to ourselves learn the technology and then be able to demonstrate it.
