How can I facilitate a student-centered classroom?
This is a great question. Play the "if" game with me for a minute.
IF I had computers for every student
IF I had a classroom full of light and books
IF I had comfortable seating and adequate work space
IF snacks were available for the hungry minds
IF everyone had access to cameras
IF IF IF
I have a lot them but that is how I see a student-centered classroom coming to light.
How can I use technology to support my instructional practice?
I truly believe that student-driven content on web sites is the way to go. The guiding questions we developed during this class are perfect gateways for students to create content that is relevant and timely. I believe in the power of the blog: the power of authorship and the power of audience.
