I teach twenty-two, enthusiastic, third graders in a K-5 elementary school located in a suburban neighborhood. The children come from diverse backgrounds and have different learning styles and needs. About one-third of my class requires extra support in reading or math. Some students are working above grade level and need enrichment activities. These children are part of the technology generation. They are familiar with computers, action-packed video games and ipods. Technology excites their learning. Sadly, when they enter my classroom our technology is outdated. I am trying to instruct using an overhead projector with transparencies that are boring and blurry. As you can imagine holding the attention of 22 eight-year olds can be a challenge especially if the material being displayed is difficult to see and they are looking at a colorless, black and white screen. Where is the action and color they are so use to in their video games and television shows?
