I discovered this blog entry entitled: "8 things kids should be able to do with technology". It is a powerful reminder about using the power of technology as a way to encourage learners to communicate, collaborate and create in our ever expanding global community. Technology has so much potential for transforming learning in ways that are meaningful for our students. Technology can also activate the authentic voices of each and every one of our students.
What I really liked about this entry was the image. It is a clear and simple way to look at what we may have been doing with technology tools in the past to what we need to be doing in the future as we all continue to have more access to more tools.
So as we start to think about our classes, our students and their learning this year keep this image as a reminder of our continued growth and change in our learning landscapes.
