Reflecting on The Digital Age

The video on Edutopia about Cameron paints an interesting picture about how technology is important with educating children today. As a math teacher I was particularly interested in how his teacher used the footage Cameron made of himself walking forward and backward as a different approach to teach how positive and negative integers relate to each other in operations.

Cameron's experiences reminded me a lot of my eleven year old sister. She isn't as tech savy as Cameron is but intersting to see how much more easily she learns how to use many of the tools technology provides us, having grown up fourteen years later than I have.

This video shows many different ways that technology can be used to make lessons more engaging and interesting, as well as providing access to many resources to supplement education.
