Agricultural Education Teachers in the 21st Century!

Education Teachers in
the 21st Century!
Krystal Hyde
The basic concepts of teaching have not changed
drastically in the past 150 years, however, the technologies
associated with these concepts have changed radically. Today we
have the Internet, smart phones, Facebook, distance education, and
computer conferences to name a few. At the college level we are
delivering many courses via distance education. I can only guess
what the next twenty-five years will bring! Agriculture teachers at all
levels need to consider how we can serve the students best in each
of our schools that we are stationed within. We each have the
opportunity to truly make a difference in the lives of the students we
serve (Agriculture Education Magazine Vol83 iss6).
Lets Google it!

O Where will the future lead us?
O How will technology effect agriculture?
O How do we as agriculture teachers keep up with the
changes in industry and business?
How do we provide students with the skill needed to be
successful in this ever changing world?
What technology do agriculture teachers need to learn?
How can agriculture teachers stay current on technologies
when they are already limited on time?
We must utilize technological advancements to increase
our rate of learning new technologies! Educators who are
comfortable with technology are more likely to incorporate
it into classrooms!

Video games needs to be well integrated the same way a
PowerPoint would be integrated with a lecture.

and solutions if cellphones are permitted.

provide more communication opportunities.
