Another Example of the Possibilities of Technology in Education

Here’s another outstanding story. There are several things that this one makes me think about.

  1. There are people of all ages making amazing use of the Web 2.0 technologies on their own. There are folks that are blogging, producing podcasts and vidcasts, creating slideshows and presentations, producing movies, etc. about things about which they are passionate. Unfortunately, I’m not sure that they are often able to bring these tools and skills or their passion into the classroom. I’d really like to see what happens if students were routinely given the chance to do so.
  2. The Web 2.0 technologies potential impact on teaching and learning blows my mind and gets me pumped.
  3. Obviously this specific story occurred outside of the classroom, but couldn’t teachers easily design a project that resulted in this kind of experience?
