Today I am experimenting with using the SMARTBOARD Notebook app on an iPad in conjunction with an AppleTV in my classroom as a replacement for the actual SMARTBOARD. I like the flexibility it offers. However, some of the features such as timers (which I use constantly to pace students) do not work. So far it is not a deal  breaker though. I'll share more thoughts as I continue to experiment.

Just some recent thoughts-

Technology is talked about everywhere both inside and outside of education- iPhones, computers, tablets. We are constantly told that “kids today” are “digital natives”. This is a really weak idea. In fact, when most middle school students walk into a classroom, they are immediately asked to take a 20 year old stance toward learning by banishing smartphones and other digital tools to their lockers. At the same time we try to convince them-- and ourselves-- that we are preparing them for a modern, non-fiction world.

The public definitely does NOT know that while kids may know how to share links and like Facebook posts, they do NOT know how to use the vast expanse of human knowledge that is at their fingertips in a way that furthers learning.

As we look to implement Common Core Learning Standards and prepare students for the myriad assessments that they will endure over the course of the year, I wonder how we can keep in mind the digital literacies that are never tested or named in standards. Some of these literacies are likely to be the keys to success for these students in the future.
