    1. a majority believe they understand technology better than their teachers. For such a student, imagine how it must sound to hear her teacher talking up “computers” and “digital tools.”

      It is frustrating when teachers talk about digital tools and computers when they are not able to use/teach them effectively. However, when a teacher does know what they are talking about it is powerful. Students assume they are know everything about digital tools and when a teacher effectively introduces something new, it lends validity to not only the teacher but also the topic of digital humanities. The point highlights the importance of training/educating teachers about the digital world, specifically tools involved with digital humanities.
