My Clasroom in 2015 “Sort of”
I walk into my classroom in 2015, what do I see? David Warlick is at the frontier of the use of technology in education. His post from 2 Cents Worth illustrates where we are going in the blogoshpere. I would first venture to what my classroom should be now. I envision myself walking into my classroom and my students are engaged in self directed learning. We have gone beyond the learning to use technology phase to the application of technology tools to create content and new learning. Learning is defined when my students use technology tools as the means to higher level of understanding. It really isn’t about having the most up to date hardware. It really is about how my students have learned to use the resources available to them. It can be 2006 or 2015, it should’nt really matter. It does go beyond having a new toy to play with. It’s all about creating a learning community where each student is able to explore and expand his or her own learning.
