technology intergration

From the power point presentation showed some interesting stuff about technology integration. First I really liked the "New Alphabet" which was a b c d e f g http://www. I don't think the kids will instantly get this but once they realize what it is saying they will find this funny. Reaffirming my commitment to technology I thought the comment about the changes of a modern day teacher as not the be all end all, but a facilitator of information. This means that the student teacher role has changed and we must work together as co-learners because the student can be teaching me different things while I teach them. Lastly the most important point was that we shouldn't use a computer to use a computer in the classroom. We should however use computers to design new learning environments.
