Please take time to watch the you tube video - 'Have you been paying attention' by clicking on the screen below.
This video takes about 12 minutes, if do not have time to view the entire clip please take a look at the key points below and realize the importance to
'know your students' in todays classroom!
In my classrooms all but 2 of my students have access to the internet at home. These children ARE interested in doing there own research. As teachers
lets help guide them in 'what' they search for. Lets make our classroom learning accessible to them. We also need to make the classroom learning interesting
enough that they WANT to search for it. Think about if we could have our kids make their own podcasts! The would definitely be interested in searching for
it and showing family members!
Making learning fun it VERY difficult, but in todays classroom I believe that we can get kids interested by utilizing there own technology! Have all the kids
text the exit question for the day to the teacher!
They want to listen to their iPods, make our unit lessons in podcast form! Sure it takes a little more time but the impact is worth the effort!
