Teaching the teachers

We seem to keep saying that we must teach the teachers – the NMC Horizon Report is yet another report that tells us so. Often the focus is on teaching new teachers as in this report that focuses on the K12 children but what about those teachers who are already teaching? How, when and where do we teach the current teachers about Digital Literacy and what it means for them and their students? Someone suggested that the Uni students with good digital technology skills should teach the lecturers how to use them effectively. What do you think – how would you feel either teaching the lecturer or being taught by the student?
Oh and just in case you haven’t seen it before – this is the funniest blog entry I’ve seen for years.
