World wide waste of time?
I really enjoyed this blog post Kickin it Old School by a teacher reflecting on technology in her classroom. "Give me a library card and a piece of chalk and stand back and watch me work," she writes of her old way of thinking. This teacher's thinking about technology evolved, but she stands steadfast in her belief that the world wide web shouldn't take us away from the "wide world of wonder."
The post made me think about the teaching ideas teachers are busy planning this summer. To what extent do they involve technology? Does technology enhance your teaching, or distract from it? I'd love to hear your opinion.
