Where does your school stand when it comes to technology availability for your students?

As we look into the upcoming school year, I question whether or not the focus of the high school's computer and technology education courses are preparing our students for the workforce. Should we as educators expect our students to acquire more programming language and more engineering software in technology education courses? Is robotic education the way to go?

These are some questions that need to be considered.....

In the elementary school that I work in, we are VERY limited to the availability of technology.  Our 185 students have to share around 80 laptops and chromebooks.  And when we do get to use them, it is for a short period of time.

Besides the library and the smart boards in each class, the school I am at doesn't provide much access to technology nor does it offer creative ways to use it.

I don't think robotic education is it, but I also do notice that with my middle school and high school students, they are already sometimes so overwhelmed with staring at a screen that when my CT shows a video or uses the board for something other than displaying student notes, the students take it as an opportunity to use the bathroom, leave the room or drift off into space and onto their cell phones.

Technology can be a tool. Application of fundamental knowledge to enhance something. Technology has advanced to great steps that pierced us all we really need to upgrade to direct the youth of today are native technological. if students are going to understand to use the tools, we need to a framework for them the same way we use model/representation creative art, reading, writing, & math skills.

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
