I was motivated and encouraged by teacher David Berger’s interview about how he uses the district’s new platform (WordPress-based if I’m not mistaken) found at: http://connect.pasco.k12.fl.us/. I love David’s attitude about encouraging students to try and not be afraid, and of preparing students for the future.
The inspiration for the title of this post is taken from the student work that Julie Walsh has posted in her classroom: It spells out poetry on her wall:
In this video, recorded with Camtasia, Julie shares her presentation on using cell phones in the classroom, polleverywhere.com, blogs, podcasts and more. She makes technology seem like poetry, fluid and full of compelling meaning (sorry! that might be the former English teacher in me).
