Digitally Diversifying Instruction

In a world where our students are increasingly surpassing our skills in understanding and utilizing technology, Vicki Davis, aka @CoolCatTeacher, has found a way to harness their enthusiasm and potential to help inform her teaching.  In this video from Edutopia’s Digital Generation Project, Vicki Davis connects her students to the world through a deft use of wiki’s, blogs, avatars, and anything in-between.  Her approach is successful partly due to her own excitement for and expertise in the digital medium, but also becuase she approaches teaching as a learner, allowing students to explore new domains and then teach her a thing or two.  The outcome is an education that provides students with relevant and meaningful skills, while also bridging the gap between school life and home life.

    Thank you for sharing this story! It was a delight to spotlight what my students are doing – they make me very proud. And yes, it is such a challenge to do it with such a small budget!
