  • We don’t see with our eyes, we see with our brains!Vision is by far our most dominant sense, taking up half of our brain’s resources.
  • Kids touching the board does not mean you have cognitive interaction. – Tommy G. principal – “What does it look like? What am I suppose to see.”
  • Learning Goal posted but nothing every said about it. Using Word to publish a piece of writing rather than hand writing it; using the interactive board as a chalkboard; using the Internet for research as opposed to encyclopedia. Watching Obama’s inaugural speech as opposed to reading his speech. (things we have done for years in education) Is the technology use pushing the both the teacher and the students to new heights, new learning, and new knowledge? Does the technology allow kids to learn from people they never would have been able to without it? Does the technology allow students to interact with information in a way that is meaningful and could not have happened otherwise? Does the technology allow students to create and share their knowledge with an audience they never would have had access to without the technology?
