Video – Engage Me• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZokqjjIy77Y• As you watch the video think about: – What must the teachers have used to help them plan these technology rich lessons that seem to have engaged their students in learning? – What must have gone on behind the scenes on the part of the teacher in order for these students to make the proclamations they did about their learning? – Are you ready to make these types of statements and requests in your classes; maybe even this one?
