In a discussion during the Insights from a 21st Century Classroom, the session's speaker, Ian Fogarty talked about the issues he had with implementing a laptop for every student. He said that he would try having students work collaboratively using laptops, but only one student would end up learning or doing all the work. Others would fall off task or not feel heard. He eventually concluded that he could have students work collaboratively using the Smart Boards in his classroom. He saw results improve immediately. This session taught me that students need to feel a part of the discussion, that they must be engaged with the technology, and they must have the tool in their hand (in this case, the Smart Board's pen) in order to fully contribute. Ian seemed like a fantastic teacher but he emphasized that the level of engagement students needed could not be provided just from him or even from laptops alone. ALL students must be a part of the discussion, and technology like the Smart Board allows us to provide that space. Too often, we use the Smart Board as a teacher tool, only occasionally involving students by circling or moving something on the board. Instead, the Smart Board should be the tool that helps students expand their thinking, and we should move to facilitate, rather than direct, that learning.
