Janet Ilko of the San Diego Writing Project is a teacher doing great things with technology for her students. Here’s her thoughtful post on this, written on the National Writing Project blog after she gave a presentation in Washington D.C. on the national Digital Learning Day. And now watch the video she made, which she also links to in the post.
I think you’ll agree that both the writing & the video are excellent windows into the work of an outstanding teacher. Now, if I could just convince her to send these to her local newspaper or online news medium, so they could be seen by a wider public, rather than just the teachers with whom she’s now communicating. People everywhere need to realize that teachers are doing this kind of powerful work.
