The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

This group's info/question has resonated with me in a struggle I've been experiencing all year - how to incorporate as much tech as possible without sacrificing the hands on. I think maybe I have set up a false dichotomy by asking that question. Are there certain topics that have to be done via hands on or can it all be done via a well done simulation? Just for the record, I teach 6th grade science.

Insights on this 'balance' would be appreciated!
