The Networked Student
The Networked Student by Wendy Drexler is a very informative short film. This video shows how networking is a great way for students to learn. In this video, Wendy Drexler`s students are encouraged to make a connection with each other to strengthen their learning process.
Student`s depend more on technology than they do books. I believe we need to teach students how to be technology literate. The video talks about all the ways students can gather information by using the internet. The video showed how students can view podcasts all over the world from different teachers.
I want to be a teacher where students enjoy learning, and I believe the best way for that to happen is to incorporate technology. I know I hate sitting through boring lectures. Teachers could make the classroom more exciting by making PowerPoint’s or letting their students watch podcasts on the lesson.
A 7th Grader's PLE
My personal learning network is not as good as hers, but hopefully it will get there. This is a great video to watch. It shows you more tools to use while teaching. The tools are not only great for the students, but also the educators.
