Connecting with kids in new ways

I’m always looking for ways we can use technology to amplify current practices to make them more powerful or to become more innovative – to do things we couldn’t do before.   While working on a PD session for some teachers last week, I came across this video of a first year teacher who used Google Forms to connect with her students on a personal level – and from where they were most comfortable – using their digital tools.

Many people are critical of the role technology plays in keeping us disconnected from others, but this is a powerful example of how technology can support those f2f relationships.

  1. In my point of view, it was a great idea to be more connected with the students. The role of the teacher is not limited to teaching and simply “feeding” students information. Teachers should be aware of the individual differences between children and should understand that each child has unique special abilities and tendencies as they develop. Communication between teachers and students should be enhanced to improve education processes.
