Ok, Now let me explain…
In a meeting this morning, leaders in technology were reporting on many events and personal experiences. Some of these included;
-making the decision to go with Google Docs as a school: i.e. Getting the Google Docs tattoo
-students can use cell phones outside school buildings (not as a learning tool): i.e. Like they are smoking
-faculty reactions to bringing laptops into middle school classrooms is similar to the reaction of someone saying they should be allowed to have beer in the classroom: i.e. Fear of loss of control and not seeing the full benefits of computers to support learning. By the way, these teachers are now using these learning tools with their students…. in middle school classrooms. 🙂 Kudos!
Many more interesting and fascinating ideas were shared! Please add them here, if you were in this meeting, and/or add your own reflections. I will share more nuggets as time goes on!
