Little Kids... Big Potential

This video makes me so excited! It shows a group of first graders blogging, using Skype, making videos, and using the internet for other great resources. When I was in first grade the most exciting things we got to do was hide a fake dog that would bark and then get to find it. Now these kids are talking to geologist on Skype and interacting with people all over the world. This excites me because hopefully they will be the change that education needs to have. Hopefully, there will be a generation that is excited about truly learning. I will be honored to help bring up that generation.


  1. Thank you Hailey for sharing your thoughts on this blog. I have a child in first grade now and he is not doing what these first grades are doing and I am so jealous. I hope after EDM 310 there will be many more teachers who are inspired to bring technology to their classroom not matter what grade.
    Thank you again for sharing your thoughts. I wish you the best in EDM 310 and your future teaching career.

  2. Hailey,

    It amazes me at how far ahead of the game Mrs. Cassidy's first graders are compared to the first grade classes here in Mobile County! It goes to show just how much we undermine a child's intelligence!
