    I gather the use of technology in classroom will never motivate the students as much as the loving feelings of a teacher who really wants to inspire students.The field of technology shouldn’t encroach on the field of actual classroom teaching.The students are human beings expecting to be intringued by another human being – their TEACHER and not by gadgets.Have we teachers forgotten our meaningful role in classroom and turn to gadgets to help us discipline and enlighten our students?

    These teachers aren’t turning to technology because they’ve forgotten their role. they’re turning to technology because of two reasons; because being able to utilize technology is imperative in our world and to enhance, not replace, themselves and their teaching roles

    I know how much my 5th and 6th graders love it when every I use any type of technology with them. I have never considered asking them the question how they could use technology to help their learning. I agree that I’m not sure they know what types of technology are out there that could help them. All the same, I am now quite curious as to what they would come up with.
    I am starting to integrate using Google Docs more with them. I plan on starting them out with Google Docs as a way for them to peer edit short stories and move into some collaboration type work.
