EdScoopTV: The jobs ‘will all be gone’
On the heels of a cross-country tour, during which he visited school districts in all 50 states, Dintersmith spoke with EdScoop TV about what he saw and learned from teachers and students all across the United States.
One of his favorite stories was about the work Darryl Adams, also featured in the EdScoop video, did in Coachella Valley School District, implementing the country’s first “Wi-Fi on Wheels” program.
And one of Dintersmith’s biggest takeaways from the school visits, he says, is that students actually feel empowered when they are given control of technology — a reality that could change the way schools deliver technology instruction.
“If we put teachers in a position of having to teach students technology, that’s a big ask and not something the teachers often are really excited about and maybe not really the best way for students to learn it,” he says.
“If we, instead, flip it and give [students] challenges and encourage them and help them to learn it … I think that’s a shift we need to think about in terms of transferring the responsibility on to the student.”
