  1. I find that I can best relate to my students' learning styles, struggles with learning and interests in learning as I venture out by learning new technology. I'm not afraid to tell them that I'm learning what they've already mastered in the technological sense. They are able to see that I want to learn new technology because that is how I can reach them even better in my teaching styles. I often ask them to help me when we're in the computer lab. I'm not ashamed to ask for their help and / or expertise in the world of technology.They're always willing to help because it is an area in which they feel comfortable and secure. I tell them that I, too, wish to feel more comfortable and more secure with technology. They can appreciate my willingness to come out of my comfort zone and learn. I believe that this motivates them to learn new and more challenging materials in my courses. They're excited when I go to school to take courses, especially over the summer.
