I am a teacher of the best 3rd graders in the state of California. The school resides in a community where there is a high percentage of students on free and reduced lunch.
Let's face it.
Today's children are much different than children were fifteen years ago. They learn differently and as a result feel disconnected from schools that were designed for another time. My students need learning to be hands on and interesting to them.
My students (Digital Kids) need multisensory input to retain information that we traditionally learned through a textbook and that's what a Flip Camcorder and microphone can provide. Our plan is to use the camcorder and microphone to make social studies and science videos.
Do you remember a teacher that made a difference in your education?
I hope to make it possible for my students to remember the year that their only learning tool was not just a bunch of textbooks.
