School Board at Lincoln

Today I got to spend some time with Mrs. Brown at Lincoln Elementary and some of the cabinet and school board members.  The students had all chosen something to share that they were doing with their tablets that they were excited about, like coding, math games, Edmodo Snapshots, amongst others.  We had the opportunity to wander around and get little tutorials from each student about the app, why they liked it, and how they used it in class.

I saw kids who were proud of what they were accomplishing, excited about learning and energetic.  I asked a few kids if they preferred their tablets over paper and books and the results were mixed.  Everyone agreed the tablets were great but some still like to be able to draw and read on paper, which I hope never goes away.

Most impressive to me was that the students owned the time and they were the experts.  Mrs. Brown didn't really have to do much except answer some questions from the visitors.  The kids stole the show. Great job!  I can't wait to see what you have in store for the technology showcase.

Students have started to blog about their experience here
