Technology in Schools… 25 Students Sound Off!By
This morning the video below came up through my Google Alerts via a search for the keywords Collaborize Classroom. When I went to the YouTube page, I found that many of our Collaborize Classroom videos are “similar” to this one about “Technology in Schools,” hence the video coming up in my Google Alerts
Justin Tarte, an educational blogger and passionate educator with a love of learning and technology, created the video from 25 quotes from students about their opinions of using technology in schools. Just watching it is inspiring.
I commented on Justin’s blog post Technology in schools…25 students sound off! “Your video is simple, straight to the point and inspiring. I watch Twitter chats and listen to admins/teachers/etc talk about educational technology, but when you listen to what the students actually want, it seems like a no-brainer to connect with them on this level.”
In an email Justin sent back to me he said:
The need for teaching technology in schools is one that is a necessity in today’s world. The ability to effectively communicate online can help students for the rest of their careers and needs to be looked at as a priority in the education. One of my favorite parts of my job is connecting with others who truly have a passion for bringing technology in schools and Justin is definitely a blogger/teacher/soon to be admin to watch!
