Hi there! I’m Samuel Benjamin and welcome to my blog.
Do you think school and learning are utterly boring? Are you having difficulty keeping your grades up? Well, you’ve come to the right place! I really hope to make learning a fun and exciting experience for you all.
Stay tuned and I hope you find all your solutions!
I am Your Modern Educator. I found school boring and irrelevant. It ticked me off so I became a public school educator who works to help change that for others. I do this by finding and sharing innovative ways to prepare students for relevant and real-world success. Among other things, this means ensuring educators and students have a voice in conversations, issues, and policies that affect them.
I began my career in the 90s as a librarian which was a perfect fit enabling me to create a vibrant oasis in Harlem where students could find their passions with support from the community. Since then I have served in various capacities including as a literacy coach, ed tech professional development manager and technology innovation manager. Today I serve as the director of digital engagement and professional learning.
Importance of Education to me
Education has many benefits and has positive impact in our life. An educated person is an asset for any country. In today’s world, human capital is considered the best national resource. On one hand, he can explore better opportunities for himself, and on the other hand, the entire nation would get benefited from his works.
Education is a must for world citizenship or global citizenship. Such a person always works for the benefits of humanity. He treats the entire human-race as brothers and sisters. We all acknowledge the importance of education, knowledge and truth for promoting the world outlook.
Education produces citizens who are men of intellectual and moral integrity, who are neither fanatical nor cynical, but are public-spirited, tolerant and wise. Education aims at producing ideal human-beings. These people are truly cultured, wise, tolerant and public-spirited. Different ages have different conceptions of ideal men.
My mission is to prepare educators for the classroom with innovative, informed, and engaging tech resources.
My vision is to provide a place for readers to discover and engage with information about the newest technology, data trends, and digital tools available to them in order to meet the needs of all students in the communities they serve.
