Conversation between a teacher and a student today.
Student: I am excited for LA today
Student: I know, it is rare for me to say that
Teacher: Do you not normally like LA?
Student: No. I am just not into reading and grammar and stuff.
Teacher: So why are you excited for today?
Student: I just really like using laptops and I think they are really cool so I have been looking forward to LA ALL day today. I just might learn to like LA.
Teacher: Proof that laptops encourage learning and promote excitement about a class that some students do not like at all.
The more I see how students and teachers interact with technology, the more I see the need to have laptops in the hands of all learners from 6th -12th grade. They were doing a Writer’s Workshop free write activity.
