Welcome to the Labragirl Film Project’s weekly film literacy discussion. Every Monday we provide a resource, activity, or methodological conversation to help you bring film analysis into your classroom. This week we look at a video produced by Edutopia that talks about technology in the modern educational process.
Edutopia is run by The George Lucas Educational Foundation, an organization that aims to improve K-12 learning by documenting, disseminating, and advocating for innovative strategies that enable students to succeed in the classroom.
The Modern Teacher & Technology
When used in an innovative manner, technology has the potential to reinforce critical thinking skills and enable students to be active participants in their own education.
When you create you take ownership of your learning. You understand it in a very different way. . .
—Adam Bellow, Outstanding Young Educator of the Year, ISTE 2011.
