"Teaching technology is  definitely important.  Our classrooms need to keep up with the times.  I think it is going to depend on the teacher if our students will be dependant only on typing.  Handwriting is important but i do not…"

"I've read some student work in this forum that is unintelligible and wonder how they will ever be employed.  At the very least, a basic education should provide all students with the literacy skills to set them up for a future in the…"

"I've wondered about this too. I feel that technology is very important for our students to learn to use effectively. We need to promote participatory culture and in doing so, create collaboration with our students. However, the "old…"

"I believe that it all comes down to usefulness and progress. Since cursive was brought up in specific, consider this:  We originally wrote in pictures, then developed more complicated and direct forms of writing.  At the advent of these…"

"Hi Ashley, Great question! I agree with you that technology is important in the classroom, but I also wonder sometimes if it is a little too much. I use my Smartboard all day long, and have other technology resources at my fingertips (document…"

"Cursive writing seems to be becoming a thing of the past.  As a middle school teacher who learned how to write in cursive during 3rd grade it has been interesting to see less and less students who know how to write in cursive each year.  I…"

"Your post made me think about cursive, print, and computers a little differently than I had  in the past.  I am a strong believer that we still need to teach print and cursive because everyone learns differently.  However, I…"

Carly Shields replied to Ashley Rawls's discussion Are we pushing technology too much?
"I agree with your concerns completely! Technology is everywhere and all students, even young students, come into contact with technology on a daily basis.  Students who become familiarized with various types of technology at a young age will be…"

"In order for today's students to be prepared for tomorrow's workplace, they must be tech savvy or they will not succeed.   I really think the writing is on the wall as far as the world moving forward in this way.  Instead of…"

"OMG!  I worry about the same exact things.  I teach first grade and I recently was told that the schools are moving away from teaching handwriting, especially cursive because it is not needed.  However, research shows and I know my…"

Amber Riniker replied to Ashley Rawls's discussion Are we pushing technology too much?
"I think technology is a great tool in the classroom. I think the benefits out-weigh  the negative points of them. However, I do see both sides of the argument. I feel some technology is very unreliable. For example, when students do research on…"

Diigo

Recently for my educational technology class, we were instructed to use Diigo to bookmark different webpages that would be beneficial to us later as educators or even now as we are training to be educators.  This is a great way to be able to collect ideas, and come back and find them using the tags.One of my favorite new findings is the following website http://www.schrockguide.net/bloomin-apps.html.  This website is so great!  This…See More
