Did You Know?

This proves that the U.S. needs to improve there educational techniques to help our population become smarter. 25% of India's population with the highest IQ outnumbers the United State's. I was truly surprised at the statics about the texts sent every minute and about the number of people who have a computer at there home. I am also shocked that the number has gone up since 2011. I like how all this information was used together to prove a point about how technology has changed throughout the years and how they influence our learning abilities. Did You Know 3.0

Mr. Winkle Wakes

This video shows how much technology is used throughout the day and our lives. Just about every job now in the U.S. uses technology, such as computers, phones, fax machines, and copy machines. These machines have not always been used in technology, and this is why Mr. Winkle did not like working or going to the hospital. He liked school because they did not use as much technology and this reminded him of when he was in school. I do like how this video, it showed how technology has changed throughout the years, and that not everyone enjoys technology like others do. Mr. Winkle Wakes

Sir Ken Robinson: The Importance of Creativity

Sir Ken Robinson thinks that creativity is one of the most important things for students to possess in school. He also says that students are scared of being wrong because they are taught that answering a question wrong is one of the worst things to happen. Schools throughout the whole world teach the same basic curriculum leaving music and art on the back burner. I feel that Sir Ken Robinson was right about creativity being taken out of education and the students. I like how he says that students need to be taught creativity to help them in the future.

This video tells the truth about that technology is taking over the world. Technology is used or will be used in every job and in schools. A Vision for 21st Century

Vicki Davis: Harness Your Students' Digital Smart

I really like this video. I like that the students did all their work on a computer. This will definitely help them in the future when they graduate and get jobs. The students interacted with students all over the world which helps them with their social skills and to learn to use the internet and their computers properly.

  1. Don't forget to proof read. When you're writing your blog posts ask yourself how the information from these sources can be helpful in the classroom. Also, ask yourself why the video was assigned. You did a good job summarizing the videos but I'd like to see a little more in-depth reflection relating to why we are all here- to teach!:]
