Video worth watching
Judy Willis video was interesting and helpful to learn about technology strategies that teachers can use, as well as the importance of letting students explore technology in the classroom. In Salman Khan video, he discussed how educational videos can supplement students learning and how the videos can be accessed at any time, as many times you want; without anyone's interruption. Jane McGonigal talked about how video gaming can be used in helping students learn. I picked "Digital Youth Portrait: Jaylenthis video because I believe that not only other educators, but also students can really relate to this video and find it interesting. I could show this in my classroom and help students understand how they can combine their interest with school related content. Jaylen is one of the students who participates in his school social network called "Remix World". By using this technology source he gets to work on his creative identity. Jaylen is very passionate about using technology in everything he does, including most of his schoolwork. He is only twelve years old, but already very precise in what he does. In future, he is planning on continuing his education in technology and maybe becoming a cartoonist, artist or a video game maker, but to Jaylen all of these professions " all come together."
