Here's an informative article from EdWeek about a teacher who redefined her classroom instruction as a result of the technology, in particular, iPads. I love this quote from the article: "So if you begin to implement a new app in your classroom and it falls flat, react by asking yourself what you’ve learned. Welcome your students into this culture of learning from adversity." Here at Smith we teach more than the curriculum. Mistakes and failures are just as important as celebrations and successes. Embrace these teachable moments!
It seems everyone has been able to login to Google! Huge celebration! Way to go!
