Technology in the Classroom

As a dad, I struggle with how much screen time (computer, video games, TV, etc.) to allow for my kids. I have been known to hide the remote, the xBox cable and even to change the password on the computer. Of course, there are times these strategies have backfired, as I have forgotten the password or where I hid the cable and remote. Although it gives my kids the right to make fun of me for being old and forgetful,  it does keep us engaged!

I also wonder about technology in the classroom. Education.com just released a great article about regarding this topic and I thought many parents out there would enjoy reading their take: http://www.education.com/magazine/article/effective-technology-teaching-child/?cid=80.

Now, I’m off to hide the remote again. Perhaps I should tell my cyber readers where I put it so someone can remind me in two weeks…
