1st Graders Rock with Technology!
Every so often, I’ll search through TeacherTube to see what sort of gems are out there. Lately, the quality of the videos, and the content has been improving dramatically. In fact, a recent contest sponsored by Interwrite Learning, a manufacturer of smart boards, tablets, and other goodies, has produced some amazing videos about using technology in the classroom. My personal favorite is the winning video for K-5. Rich Colosi, an elementary teacher in Canandaigua, New York, has produced the kind of video with his students that makes me want to move back into the classroom where I have constant contact with the same kids everyday, instead of just the 45 minutes I see each class every week.
Enjoy the movie, and don’t be ashamed if you find your feet tapping.
