Great video on Technology Integration! Thank you!

This is awesome. I'm approaching 40 so I am willing to admit that I went to school with dinosaurs. If we could possibly place one of these kids from the video into one of my childhood classroom they would totally freak out, thinking they were dropped off into the twilight zone. It was so strict, nothing but rules and punishment, confined spaces, boring, non-engaging, unchallenged...and the "hungry for the spotlight type-teacher" How did we endure? Like someone mentioned earlier the kids at this age are so well-spoken and engaged. Good for these kids. May be the future generation has a lot more to offer than we think.

It's really difficult to hear the narrative with the music .

This is a great resource for my students and it explains how technology should be used as a tool for all 21st. century educators.

Thanks so much for the video. Technology that lets the classroom be student focused is key!

Great video. I think the key is it should be all about the student not the teacher. I have seen teachers use technology in amazing ways but unfortunately the students are doing nothing. IWB's are a good example of this! Let's work on a student model where students are making connections and enhancing learning and using technology in creative and innovative ways. Great video.

Wow...those kids are far more well spoken and engaged than my generation ever was at school in being forced into the textbook learning approach. I noticed the students were using Macs and were greatly encouraged to be creative and share their experiences. I hate being 27! I want to go back to school! Excellent youtube clip.

Love that they are using Macs! Students are going to be much more prepared for careers with all the tech training they are getting in school.

This is really a very good video. It goes to the core of what technology integration is all about.

This is definitely very inspiring. It is nice for those of us at the college level to see what is happening with technology in the K-12 system. As a music technology specialist, it is exciting to see young students working with music applications and audio recording. We should be training our music education students with more technology (so that they can apply it in their classrooms), and I think we should expect more out of all of our college students when it comes to using technology.
