So my Grade 8s have been hearing about the new stuff the grade 5s are doing...blogging, shooting podcasts, using some little Smartboard app on an iPad and even 'going' to Disney World in Math class on the laptops
and they WANT in!
and iPod touches
in meaningful ways.
They don't want to wait.
They want to use new programs, new tools, new technologies... now in school.
They don't think they should be banned from WiFi access.
They want to learn.
