Does anyone else feel the urgency I feel to use Web 2.0 in the classroom? Long before reading about the necessity for “doing different things” with technology, I have felt the need. Why are today’s students so difficult to reach, inspire even with all the researched techniques. I agree that we must not be afraid of change in our classrooms and new “things” to do. We must be afraid of no change and what will happen in our classrooms, country, and potenially the world if we do not change.
I have included Will’s blog “Willing to be Disturbed” and a wonderful video by some middle school students who skillfully and honestly present my thoughts and feelings.
