My Vision of Education + Technology + Math
By Samantha Wilken Klersy
Why I integrate Technology to Help Students Learn
Thoughts along the way
To go beyond just substitution of pencils and paper for computers and tablets, and to teach students to express themselves and publish their work to connect with others and collaborate together.
My Final Vision
The tools, projects, and values I instill in my students is what will create the innovative collaborative thinkers that I aim to educate are far more important. The tools I use to get there are helpful and valuable, but it's the pedagogy and teaching that must come first. The tools can only act as a support system.
I will continue to focus on students creating and sharing projects and ideas using technological tools both old and new. My students will learn to think for themselves to support the life they want for themselves and for others around them.
