I am part of a group of teachers that meets a couple of times a year for a technology conference. We talk a lot about where technology is taking the world of education and I wanted your thoughts. We talked a couple of weeks ago about the possibilities of Facebook in the classroom. Yes, it's a long way off and Facebook has to put some privacy policies in place, but can you imagine extending student learning into something they are interested in? Can you imagine the types of discussions you could have if you were aloud to post questions and get answers 24/7? We've also talked quite a bit about cell phones in the classroom. Many teachers can not get past the "cheating" aspect of cell phones but what if children were taught to use them properly. It's their way of communicating, why not meet them in their communication zone and teach them the way they want to learn? Besides that, why not interest them in learning by using things they are interested in? I just wanted to know what you all thought about this?
