Tonight was a great session to hear about all the digital projects going on in our class. The diversity of each one demonstrates our growth in the field of technology and how we can use this in our classroom. Our students / parents will greatly benefit from it. These projects will also help promote technology in the classroom and more and more teachers may see the benefits it could have. I know in my school, teachers are seeing the advantages and are excited when I share these new tools with them.
On another note: I just got confirmation on a virtual field trip that I will be taking my grade 2 students on. The Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller offers virtual field trips through video conferencing. I am very excited that my students get to participate in this experience. They will get to meet a junior scientist and ask them questions about dinosaurs. The school division is also excited that this is happening as they have been trying to find and show ways to teachers how they can use the video conferencing units in the classroom.
