The effect of technology on our world in the past decade has been mind boggling. Perhaps its greatest impact has been the explosion of tools to create and share pictures, movies and sounds. What used to cost thousands of dollars and require years of training is now accessible to anyone with a camera and an internet connection. Abundance is resulting in an unbelievable amount of content but still a very low percentage of quality. As educators, it is clear we must consider viewing and multimedia content creation every bit as important as reading and writing. Visual communication is the professional language of th future. Let's examine together how we'll make our classrooms places where students can utilize the tools to tell amazing, beautiful stories.

    • Whose woods these are I think I know.His house is in the village, though;He will not see me stopping hereTo watch his woods fill up with snow.My little horse must think it queerTo stop without a farmhouse nearBetween the woods and frozen lakeThe darkest evening of the year.He gives his harness bells a shakeTo ask if there is some mistake.The only other sounds the sweepOf easy wind and downy flake.The woods are lovely, dark and deep,But I have promises to keep,And miles to go before I sleep,And miles to go before I sleep.
