Did You Know 4.0
While watching the video, a few things came to mind. First of all, it seems like there's no escape from this world where technology is quickly taking over our lives so we could either fight it or embrace it. Learning to use existing and emerging technology could be very effective in our classrooms as long as we keep the emphasis on learning, and don't allow the novelty of the gadgets to distract or take away from our learning objectives.
So, what does it mean to be a learner in this day and age?
There isn't one definitive answer but a few of the implications may include a global awareness of current world events.
What particularly interested me was the opportunity to establish connections with schools and students from anywhere in the world to collaborate on projects. A few years back, students would be limited to their own research on a local level but now we can share and exchange ideas with people who may have different sources of research.
Integrating technology in the art classroom is an area I will have to look into further in the near future!
