Not enough

I keep reading about schools that "buy laptops, printers, scanners, Web cams, electronic whiteboards, digital cameras, and video cameras." But so what?! What else is out there? What are they doing with all that equipment? I will continue my quest to find out, to push the envelope and to bring the latest and best technology developments to the classroom. But what is a classroom anyway these days? Do we still think of them the same way? The best classrooms break down their walls with technology. Just thoughts...

"What are they doing with all that equipment?" - Too true! Schools are buying all this technology but at FAILING to utilize it! Like owning the stuff is going to suddenly make you technology savvy. I work at a school where the electronic whiteboards sit in room gathering dust because no one knows how to use them! If the teachers can't use the technology then they should quit and make room for those of us that can.
