His argument on kids using technology to do other things that can lead to a dangerous out come was awesome. Some people do not realize that they are causing so much drama on the internet. Cyber bulling, sexing, and porn is something most kids do not need to be doing or interactive with, but they are and its sad. Don't Teach Your Kids This Stuff, Please? is a good blog and many teachers and parents need to read it.
I fell in love with this piece. This was so awesome and beautiful. It was very creative and even though everyone was in their own home they all was on the same key and perfect harmonies. This just shows me how much the internet really have to offer. It must have took a long time to do this but it was awesome. I really enjoyed this hope everyone else did. Eric Whitacre is very creative and the music was beautiful once more.
Teaching in the 21st Century
To teach in the 21st century, is asking who will teach it to the students in this century everything they need to know in life. How will they obtain their resource. I think what he trying to say is who will go father in the teaching when it needs to be done. Who will teach the students everything they need to know? As teachers it is our job to go further with our research to teach the information to the student so they will know the information they need to know to obtain in life, school, and their surroundings. I do not think that technology can teach the way a teacher can because it takes time and care to get to a student, and technology can only give the information.
Reading Rocket is a good website for parents and teachers. They have a lot of learning apps and information for all kinds of activities and subjects. It will be helpful for the teachers for the classroom and the parents for at home. The site have tutoring sessions online, activities for struggling readers, and a lot of free apps to download for much more learning fun. It will be something I can adapt to in my future classroom for good ideas and activities for my students.
