Just as my mother lived from the dawn of the airplane to watching men walk on the moon, I’ve witnessed the computer shrink in size from a locomotive to a fingernail; from costing more than a house to less than a pair of shoes. In 35 years I’ve worked as a teacher, lecturer, trainer, and technology coordinator, always striving to find the best way to teach. If a pencil does the job, use a pencil. Simple. But the world is not simple, and there are things students need to comprehend that require a depth of knowledge best reached through the power of technology. Never before have I seen so many teachers marvel at how technology has enhanced their classroom - it’s still fun to watch the light bulbs go on!
