“…at the heart of good teaching there are three components: content, pedagogy and technology, plus the relationship among and between them...” (Koehler & Mishra, 2009).
A person who knows and is aware that he knows, is wise, follow him;A person who knows but is not aware that he knows, remind him;A person who doesn't know and is aware that he doesn't know, teach him;A person who doesn't know and pretends to know, is fool, leave him
Bless me in my undertakings Dear God, grant me victory and I shall shout your blessings for all to hear of your power!
