a meaningful use of ed tech

Go to this page... (once there click on the picture)

...and watch a group of fourth graders unleashing the power of ed tech in the most meaningful way possible. There is no off the shelf corporate product or drill and kill solution that will take the place of this kind of meaningful application of technology.

Moving and motivating stuff.

The site & video provide a wonderful resource for inspiring new technologies in schools, especially technologies that provide differentiation accessibility. The video demonstrated the flexible mindset that our youth have, and in this case the teacher's mindset too. I can't wait to share the video with my building staff. The video is a wonderful example of the popular phrases "just do it", "shift happens", "you never know till you try" and one more, "whether you say you can or can't, either way you're right".

I am a college student pursuing my Bachelor's in Elementary Ed. I am in a "Computers in Education" class currently and learning about the positive aspect of technology in the classroom. Thanks so much for sharing the video, it shows just one more reason why technology is completely helpful in today's classroom. I think it is awesome how the teacher wanted to keep the sick student involved in the classroom even though it meant going through a lot of extra work. Oh the beauty of technology! Thanks for sharing!!!

What an incredibly compelling video! Thank you so much for sharing.

I am currently working on my master's degree in Integrating Technology in the Classroom. Watching the video made me realize how deeply technology can and does impact our lives. It was incredible to see a teacher make an extra effort to include a home bound sick child. This further stresses the importance of staying up-to-date on the technology resources we have available to us.

The teacher’s actions not only showed compassion, but created an opportunity to structure instruction via technology.
