Last week we had the pleasure of George Couros coming to our class and give us a presentation. He spoke to us on what he looks for in a teacher. He gaves us some examples of questions he would ask a new teacher in an interview. He also talked about our digital identity. I never really thought about it before, about how important it is for me to have a positive digital identity. I also want to make sure that my students have their own positive digital identity.

George also talked about making sure to connect with the kids. I also think this is so important. A teacher can know the curriculum really well but if they don’t have that connection with the students, the students will lose interest and won’t pay attention to the stuff being taught.

Overall I’m glad we had this presentation. It really got me thinking about my digital identity and making sure that I make connections with my students. Thanks George!
