Last nights presentation with was very informative. I was neat to see how educational technology has evolved from the start until now. I liked how he made us recall our fondest memories of educational technology, where my earliest memory was the film strips and learning how to type on the compaq 64 computers. Now we look at today, it’s absolutely incredible where technology has taken us. Where technology will go from here… no one knows, and I think that is the exciting part. Who thought we would be able to social network the way we do now on the web.
Today I showed my students the link to their story we created on voicethread. Their first words out of their mouth were: “I’m on the web!” When I clicked on our class blog page and they saw the title page, they were ecstatic. There was absolute silence while I played the story. They just couldn’t believe that they could hear and see their picture on the web. I think they now believe they are famous :)!!!
