Part of my job next year will include collaborating with others and using technology in order to help develop our district's model of a digital classroom. I just finished an online lesson to prep us for our training, and I really enjoyed one of the YouTube videos we were asked to view. It is less than 5 minutes, and I encourage you to watch it. It is pretty powerful!
Some of you may watch this and are sad to think that you don't have the resources to teach this way. I want to point out that moving to a digital classroom can happen in baby steps. If you need resources, you can always write grants or work with a site like Donor's Choose. That's how I got 3 iTouches to use in my classroom!
