I think it visualy discribes how many of us in this course feel. Including myself.

Farkry mentioned in a recent post about observing students helping out teachers with the ICT technical problems; the teacher being taught by the student. This is something I have also noticed in my experiences in the classroom. The ease at which students appear to use and navigate social media, technology etc…. like it is not something new or foriegn – which i suppose, for most of society’s teenagers, it is not!

Although I appreciate ICT’s and have come to value the use of ICT’s in education (i’m doing a degree via ICT!!), i’m still not convinced that i would enjoy using ICT as a ‘hobby’ or an activity that I engage in for pleasure….like most of ou rhigh school students do!
