How do my students interpret or define the words collaborate, communicate connect? I grabbed my Flip camera and headed to the hallways to find out how my students define communication. (You have already heard them talk about collaboration (see post: Have Flip. Will Travel).)
Here's my question, "How do we help students see the connection between expressing oneself and communicating an idea?"
Technology is a wonderful thing and when used appropriately can provide authentic learning experiences, but I am most excited about using technology to communicate and connect with others. (I interpret "communicate" as the ways which we express ideas, thoughts and knowledge; and, I interpret "connect" as the ways we share these ideas thoughts and knowledge.) Stay tuned, because my students are eager to communicate and connect with you!
