Don't Teach Your Kids This Stuff. Please?  


I agree with him 100%. It is true because some parents and older teachers are scared of social networking and computers for some reason. If we teach our students how to use the technology correctly then they will be able to get around problems. I do not want to be in a class that does not want to help students grow in all fields because I will be behind. I do not want to be left behind so teachers please teach the kids about social media. He has received numerous awards for his work in technology workshops.  

Watch The iSchool Initiative: 
I think it would save money and help educate our country in a more technologically advanced place. With saving money then possibly lowering our taxes or helping lower country’s debt. All of the applications that you can already upload onto an Iphone or ipad will help dramatically getting started and going with iSchool. 

We can have them personalized for teachers and students, but the best thing the parents would be able to follow homework, stay up on grades and most important be able to talk or email teachers. I would spend the little money it cost to help buy these for students if I had a business and wanted a tax write off. It might be considered tax deductable through charity.       


The Lost Generation: 
IT has all been said about my generation that we can not keep this country together, and that we care too much about what is on facebook. Well I do care and so does my generation about all that this country and what our world turns out to be. I thought the technique was great on how she stated something but in reverse it was opposite. I would not mind trying to set up a video like this.  


Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir:
I think this is pretty nice how you can use the internet to have a show choir. They also sound great to my ears; if I heard a recording of this I wouldn’t have been able to that this was done online. This would startle the likes of Johann Sebastian Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven if the heard this and you told them it was done online. They did not have records back then and we know can have a 185 person ensemble choir. 

Teaching in the 21st Century:
It is pretty close to all being true. We have evolved from just reading books and doing lectures to helping them with blogs, twitter, and actually teaching them how we can use Google to help us find information on research papers. I am going to be strength and conditioning coach but believe me I’m going to help my kids and others how to use what I’m learning now. We have gone from a classroom that is local to one that is global and it helps students learn.

  1. I totally agree with you. I would not want to be in a class where they do not teach technology. Parents and teachers need to realize that technology is not going anywhere. In a few years, technology will be essential to life. We need to teach kids how to use in now, and if we teach them what the bad is, they won't get into it.

  2. Now all we have to do is wait for you to "make a million" in business and come offering an opportunity to support the schools.

    Interesting thought: what would Bach, Mozart and Beethoven say?

    Good job! keep up the good work.

  3. I agree with you also. Can you imagine being in a classroom with old technology, when you know that there is better out there.Its like living with the Flintstones and you're in When you should be caught up with The Jetson's. I agree with what you said.We must stop thinking locally and think globally.
