Jesse Pearson's Recent Article in Independent School Magazine: Technology in the Classroom
Jesse Pearson, 8th Grade English Teacher & Advisor, High School Placement Counselor, and Director of Experiential Education, reflects on the technological tools that became essential during remote learning and what role they should play in the classroom, and our lives, today.
"COVID-19 taught this generation that to be without technology is to be cut off from the world, from school and their friends, and from everything they value. It’s our job to teach them that that doesn’t have to be the case...It is OK for kids to learn that technology makes life easier. But we should not allow them to mistakenly think that it always makes life better."
