I’ve been reading about the digital divide in K - 12 education and how the pendulum has swung and how the very concept of that divide has been recalibrated.
Using technology in the classroom has never quite been straightforward, but I’m all about some vision and some version of balance. Everything in moderation, including moderation, yes?
2 years ago I wrote a grant for Chromebooks in my classroom and I think they’ve added a rich layer to our global studies and humanities work especially in connecting with people around the world.
Yesterday and today, kids were working on with Out of Eden Learn project as part of the Planetary Health Walking Party, collaborating with students from California, Spain, Argentina, and Indonesia.
I love these types of projects that help me to make the walls of my classroom permeable and accessible.
