An Age of Technology
My most significant takeaway from the "Cameron" video is that I am twice Cameron's age and he probably knows four times more about technology than I do. Even though, I consider myself to be quite speedy with technology, there are still some areas where my knowledge is lacking. I'm sure I could learn alot from him. I think that Cameron's video connects with my life because there are quite a few times where I find myself answering my parent's questions about their IPOD's or their computer. The part in the video where Cameron had actually made a video to help his teacher make her math lesson more interesting was great. I remember when I was in high school, we made several videos for my AP English class. It definately livened up the classroom. Those videos caught people's attention more than just reading the assigned book would. This is the kind of enviroment that I would like to use in my own classroom. I think it would be great for all the different kinds of learning styles. I also think that as teachers it is our responsibilities to help kids grow as technology does.
