One thing I liked about this article was that they emphasize the importance of teaching the basics along with technology integration. Frequently, it feels like this becomes an either/or debate, when to really teach both things well, they should be taught simultaneously.
I appreciated the examples of what some states are doing to improve in the area of technology. Alabama surprised me in that they are training students to teach their teachers about technology. I find this very interesting. So many students know more about technology then their teachers. My students frequently teach me new things on my computer, which I always appreciate.Posted by kows0005 at July 11, 2005 9:48 AM
