Tech @ BG: An Introduction For Parents

A few days ago, I was out for dinner with some friends. One of my pals brought along someone I had never met before. When we got talking about our careers, I explained that I am a computer teacher. My new acquaintance looked blankly at me, and asked, "An elementary computer teacher? What can you possibly teach them? They're too young to learn anything interesting!"

That got me thinking. People who have been out of school for a while really don't have any idea of what we DO in the Computer Lab. As an introduction, I invite you to check out this video (below). It was created by the fine people at MIT, as a part of Project New Media Literacies, and it outlines just a teeny-weeny bit of what we do every day.
