Do Educators Need to be Entertainers?
Author: Alan November Posted: Mar. 5, 2009
I was recently watching last year’s PBS Frontline episode entitled Growing Up Online with a group of teachers in New York. One teacher in the movie stated that, “[Educators] almost have to be entertainers.” This statement led to a great deal of discussion in the session. It was so interesting that I thought I would post the question here as well. Do today’s students and our fast-paced, interactive world require us to be entertainers? What do you think?
