  • Mr. Fryer,
    Hello! My name is Catherine Stalvey and I am an elementary education major at the University of South Alabama. When I started this semester, I was anti technology in the classroom because I didn't like the possibility that it could decrease a child's ability to lead a normal social life. However, my view points have vastly changed, because I now realize that technology is actually enhancing the way our children are able to learn. I'm a human being and my teaching methods will always be flawed, but technology is hardly ever inadequate. My only concern is, what will we do if something crashes in the classroom? I observed in a middle school a few weeks ago and out of nowhere, the computer/Smart Board crashed in the middle of a lesson. My teacher had to improvise (luckily she's incredible at her job), but it made me wonder if you were a first year teacher, would it make teaching even more difficult if your resources were to stop working temporarily?
    I really enjoyed the slide show you put together about improving writing skills with an iPad, and I thought your 'Saturday morning cartoons' joke was hysterical. I would love to be able to use iPads in my classroom one day, and I will definitely look into the apps you suggested throughout this presentation.
    If you would like to check out my blog, feel free - stalveycatherineedm310.blogspot.com
    And I would so love a Tweet from you (I just started following you)! @cd_stalvey
    Thanks for your time!
    -Catherine Stalvey

  17. 17. I know from watching and listening all over the country in schools and in workshops, however, that many educators have become less creative, more timid and unimaginative, and have indeed lost pride in their work in the face of how heavy-handed the states have been in promulgating this retro and harmful “accountability”. Why is not the state responsible for ensuring that the incentives are right and the resources are available to do the work well? States should have to be accountable for how local leaders interpre their mandates. But states wash their hands of the problem of change; they merely issue mandates. So, teachers become brow-beaten by scores, encouraged to do test prep, and in general, down the authority line, to teach worse rather than better – somehow in the name of “standards.” http://grantwiggins.wordpress.com/2013/08/26/standards-yes-current-implementation-no-how-we-have-re-invented-soviet-era-wheat-quotas/
