CHALK TALK. CHALK TALKS THE BEST

When I was a student in high school and in college, instead of paying attention to what they were teaching, I paid more attention to how the teachers taught and managed their schedule and their students and how they decorated their class rooms. How they dressed and the awful cars and trucks they drove were a source of great hilarity, too. Most of them were of the old school way: teacher … piece of white or yellow chalk … green chalkboard … and a textbook. And their engaging personality.

I don’t believe that classroom technology has made us smarter. Old school teachers ... supremely engaging and caring and knowledgeable teachers with chalk-coated fingers ... make us smarter. Sometimes you don’t even need the textbook or a chalkboard.

Right, it is not the tool, it is the use of the tool. This is all very true for first grade! They much prefer hands-on learning to technology (and usually having to share it).

Orthodox mode of teaching are proving to be very effective in teaching new generation. This creates an interest among students. Though in modern era student still loves to live that age from where their parents grew up. But it depends a lot on tutor, if they can create a fuss about the technique.
