  • What do you think about technology in the classroom? How do you use technology? What are your struggles? Apprehensions? Successes?
  • The upper grades… We prepare them for the “next steps” in reading and math. Are we preparing them for the “next steps” in technology? Impact on student’s learning
  • Challenges- can’t type, TIME, sharing out is even difficult… publishing take so long! Benefits- understand audience/ purpose, real world connection, self reflection, pride- motivation, peer editing/partnerships become more real. WG reflections “I notice” “If this was mine”.
