Today I was in a meeting about electronic portfolios. As we worked on charts and standards and rubrics, conversation drifted to how many technology tricks we learn from students.
While I recommend getting a grounding in ways to instill academic excellence in our technology projects, never be afraid to learn from the students. Besides the great things they can show you, you will be modeling the very attitude you hope they have toward reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic. “Tip of the Day” is what I call it; extra credit, anyone?
