Technology Goggles

15 03 2011

We talked about looking at our teaching practices to see what kinds of new things we could do using technology… Check out this TED talk about language acquisition. What began as an interesting study on how children learn became a unique way to harness social media and look at its power. Wow.

Don’t forget to check out the comments — there’s a lesson or two to be learned about rules of comportment and ways to handle discussion!
