I believe that students can learn without electronic devices. I'm a huge fan of clay, Play Dough, cardboard, math manipulatives, colored pencils and other non-techie things. I also have a one-to-one device to student ratio. And as much as I say that students should easily be able to share supplies, devices are made for the individual. I wouldn't want to share my teacher computer on a rotating schedule. We don't ask for students to share pencils, paper or textbooks. Why are we asking them to buddy-up with technology in the name of "collaboration?"
so this is me . . .
I'm a teacher, author, speaker, and incessant doodler. I want to see kids fall in love with reading and writing. It's why I cofounded Write About and cowrote Wendell the World's Worst Wizard.
Here I blog about teaching, writing, life, and the creative journey. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
