Sometimes you get MORE than you pay for
I had an epiphany last night. When I signed up for Technology class I expected to benefit from the education, expertise and experiences of Mr. Chamberlain---and I have. However, thanks to technology I have also benefitted from the education, expertise and experiences of Jennifer Scoggins (Mrs. Mimi), Ira Socol, Sir Ken Robinson and the other educators and particpants presenting Ted Talks. I got really excited when I realized the richness of experience I am having in this class. Then I started thinking, if I am this excited---what about an Elementary Student who got to chat with his favorite children's book author? A class studying weather who could skpe with a meteorologist? A High School Government class that could ask questions of their State Representatives? The possibilities are endless! WOW! I think I am finally starting to get it!
