Did You Know was an amazing video. I was amazed when I saw all the types of technology used today. Cellphones, computers, Ipods, MP3 Players, facebook, myspace and other networds hae become a big part of peoples lives. Watching this video has made me realize that technology is a big deal today. I am not very familar with technology, but I would like to learn more about it. I only own a few of the items shown in this video. I have a Facebook account, but I rarely use it due to school and work. In the world that we live in today, technology is steady growing and ever changing.
I enjoyed Sir Ken Robinson. He was very funny, but he said a lot of good things. I thought that it was so funny when he told the people in the audience that a girl said she was drawing a picture of God, and the teaher told her that no one knows what God looks like. I liked it when he said that we have to help children make something of their future. By being a substitute teacher, I have seen that so many children tody do not want to learn or do any work. I think that this is really sad. I blame this mostly on the their parents. A child's educaion begins at home, and it is up to parents to help their children make something of themselves. As a future educator, I want all of my student to succeed and be something in life.
The interview that Cecilla Gault had with Ken Robinson was very interesting. I really enjoyed the part when Ken Robinson said that anyone can be creative. Everyone has their own way of expressing their creativity. Even some exceptional children are creative. I would include Cecilia in my classroom by letting her be my student assistant and helping decide on acamdemic and fun activities for her and her classmates.
Harness Your Students Digital Smarts is a wonderful video. I liked it that Mrs. Davis was so open and honest. I enjoyed the part when she said that teachers do not have to know everythng. This is so true not just for teachers but for other career professionals. No one knows the answer to everything. There are some things that we have to research ourselves or ask a reliable source. I thought that it was interesting that her students taught her how to terraform. This video is a very useful source for future educators.
