It was great to read that teachers in Miami are exploiting the Internet and modern technology to help teach children. According to the Miami Herald newspaper one art teacher is using blogging to engage more with children in classes. Another teacher has started using iPods to deliver digital content to children. What a fantastic idea – use the technology children are using to connect with them. Schools in the UK are so behind the times. They are slowly investing in “smart board” technology which helps teachers interact with PowerPoint projections. But that is so last century, as far as children are concerned. So come on teachers, get blogging and downloading stuff to the kids iPods.
