This IS What It's All About

So my Grade 8s have been hearing about the new stuff the grade 5s are doing...blogging, shooting podcasts, using some little Smartboard app on an iPad and even 'going' to Disney World in Math class on the laptops

and they WANT in!

They want to USE their cameras
      and iPod touches
               and laptops
                        in meaningful ways.

They don't want to wait.
They want to use new programs, new tools, new technologies... now in school.

They don't think they should be banned from WiFi access.
They don't think it's fair that the bad apples get to spoil it for them.

They want to learn.
