So what’s this all about?
As part of my Media Specialist journey, I’m looking at ways we can further share our understanding of how we fit into this world of ours- which, by the way, seems to be both growing and shrinking daily! As our students can access the world, literally, at their fingertips, we find ourselves on a whole new journey in education. On the other hand, as the gap grows between the generations as to not only what we learn, but how we learn, the world is sometimes a big and scary place.
My goal here is to create a safe and useful place for us ALL to explore the use of media and technology in our learning to make the journey not only a little more comfortable, but exciting and fun too! As Robert Fulghum says in All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (1986)
“…And it is still true, no matter how old you are — when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.”
And so, with that in mind, take a look at an Animoto video I created, as we look at where we are, where we’re heading… Media Y2K to today…
