What do you think?

Here is a video about what students say about technology in their classrooms:

Students Sound Off on School Tech Use from Education Week on Vimeo.

What do you think? Should schools adopt more technology into their classrooms? Should students be able to access the Internet outside of the library? Should they have access to web-based email programs (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc) at school?

How is technology used in your children's classrooms? Is it embraced by the students and teachers? Is the available technology being used? For example, a few of the students in this video stated that there were Smartboards in a few of the classrooms, but the teachers rarely used them.

I look forward to embracing technology when I become a teacher. I feel that students will learn more when they are engaged, and using technology can be that tool to help grab their interest.

  1. I think that the internet in schools should be WAY filtered to just educational sites. There's way too much garbage out there to allow free access to hormonal teens in a crowded classroom. On the other hand, I feel that a lot there is a lot of good going on out there with technology in the classroom. It's pretty amazing how interactive it can be.
