TECHNOLOGY! WHO NEEDS IT!?
As my students discovered this week, we are unable to use the interactive. electronic whiteboard, so we will probably turn the class around and check out the old blackboard with its ancient chalk. Wow, what a change.
We will survive of course but I note that it is difficult to adjust to life as it was before the advent of technology. There is a lot to be said for working with limited resources. At heart, I am a minimalist and prefer the grassroots basics of teaching with students working independently and sharing their ideas.
I was directed to an index of nifty modern tools that you may or may not know about. There is a dizzying array of stuff out there. This listing will direct you to their whereabouts on the WWW. Good luck!
