I really enjoyed the live session last night. I am excited to try out the PhotoStory 3. I love the way the photos can pan across and zoom in and out - I think that is awesome!
The text book talked about how the computer is just another media for our students to use. I have to admit that I can see that point. The more options the students have the better for them. When we talk about Reggio Emilia and the 100 languages of children but then we go and steal 99 of them and leave the students with only the pen and paper - I can relate the readings in the text to my early childhood classes. I was thinking about that last night (instead of sleeping) and for sure some students would be engaged and using different languages on the computer. These same students may not otherwise want anything to do with school and the pen and paper but if we can hook them in with something they really have an interest in - then that is a good thing, for sure.
