“The fact that I, as a teacher, get to assume the role as facilitator and guide gives me the extra energy to really see the students as individuals, and to challenge their individual competences and talents.” – Denmark | daily edventures
Martin Lindved’s passion for technology started early, when he got his first game console in the 1980s. Since then, he’s managed to combine his love of technology and play to create meaningful learning experiences for his students. Lindved’s latest innovation, The Digital Tarzan Track (DTT), brings together all of his experience in working with children. Using the didactic model, the approach combines the three things that are crucial in successful teaching and learning: ICT, play and movement. Lindved has been sharing his innovation with other educators, and sees his students gaining real 21st century skills, even as pre-schoolers. Here, Lindved tells us more about DTT, and offers up some insights on the changing role of teachers and the resulting opportunities for innovation.
