M2 Learning Log 1 – A vision statement

June 21, 2011 at 1:02 pm Leave a comment

I just finished watching the youtube video “A Vision of K-12 Students Today.”  There was a quote in the video “If we learn by doing, what am I learning sitting here?”   Shortly afterwards they were all holding up the white boards with “Engage Me!” written on them.  Its scary to think about how many paper copies of worksheets have been passed out to document the students doing something in class……but the quote is true, are they really learning anything?  Most of those worksheets are filler time.  We as teachers need to find new ways to connect and communicate with our students in a language they understand and want to take part in.  Its a huge challenge for teachers with students who do have access to computers at home, and even a larger hurdle for teachers with 1 or more low SES students.  But how do we incorporate technology into the classroom on a daily basis when there are only 2 computers for the entire class??
