Lee Baber’s eighth graders and my fifth graders shared experiences and ideas for about 40 minutes today. My class in Sparks, Nevada and her class in Virginia are pictured above projected on my ActivBoard. We shared how we have used Skype and technology to support our learning and how we might do so in the future. My students were shy and it was hard to get many to share their thinking or experiences. Lee had just about as much difficulty with her students that are early in their learning curve on using these tools. We both videotaped in our classrooms, so after editing we will post vidcasts of the session. When I have more time I will post more info about what was discussed. We debriefed afterwards and from those notes we will post to our blogs too.
Learning Is Mesy!
