Face-To Face And Online Relationships is the title of my latest post on “In Practice,” a blog written by a group of us who teach at schools in low-income communities.
I’ve generally written longer posts there sharing my perspective that “technology has its place, but also has to be kept in its place” in the classroom (I adapted that phrase from an economist who was originally speaking about the free market in a capitalist economic system). I will also be chronicling there an experiment I’ll be doing by teaching two of the same Social Studies classes next year — one using my usual engaging curriculum that doesn’t use technology a great deal, and the other using laptops each day. I’ll be including various assessment along with way to compare the two.
I have links to my previous In Practice posts on the sidebar of this blog. They include:
