"Ah Ha" moment #1... chatting with a teacher about iPads. One of her comments to me was "What's so great about the iPad, is that I don't have to know how to do everything with them; and that's OK, because my students are teaching me! I am learning from them and I love it...they are so engaged and excited about learning!"
"Ah Ha" moment #2... working with a teacher after school on ways to share her human body exit interviews with students families. I could see the light bulb go off and the next thing I know we were talking about her creating a YouTube account for her class to share their video projects with family and friends.
As mentioned before, we just rolled out 400 iPads in grades JK thru 4. So...there has been a lot of change in the Lower School division at my school.
As with anything new...change is hard. I am so thankful for the "Ah Ha" moments that these two teachers had today and look forward to more moments like these...
