It turns out I’m not the only Katie blogging about technology in education on edweek.org. We’ve just launched a new blog, Teaching Generation Tech, written by Katie Hanifin, a teacher at Canastota High School in upstate New York. She’s blogging about her experiences as a teacher, trying to bridge the gap between modern technology and the classroom.
It’s refreshing to hear about the ways that technology can help, and hinder, instruction through the eyes of a teacher, rather than just from researchers or academics. Like this post, which talks about cell phones that repeatedly go off during class despite the school’s no phone policy. Or this one about technology and student engagement.
We’re really excited to have Katie join the edweek.org blog roster. We recommend that you head over to her Teaching Generation Tech and help us welcome her to the blogosphere.
