Remembering the power!

As I get ready to travel to Collumbus for the SchoolNet conference, I ran across this picture which brought back so many memories. Middle school students, one computer to a classroom, teachers working valiantly to integrate technology into the curriculum despite tremendous challenges. I would visit classrooms and see the power of technology pull students into learning! Surrounded in their everyday lives by technology, but so little access to use it as a tool for learning in school. What a disconnect! The conference is exciting but the teachers there return to districts struggling to survive financially with few and/or outdated resources. Hopefully the workshop will be able to impact some children's learning in a positive way.
