While in school one day, I caught my son playing with a document camera. I was amazed by his adventurous curiosity; he had no fear playing with the ELMO – trying to figure out what it can do and how it works.
To me, there is no better professional development in learning new technology than to simply get your hands on it and see how it works.
That’s my advice as a technology integrator – go ahead and play with it. Figure it out. See what it can do.
After that, we’ll see what else we can do with it and how it can transform your teaching.
