How did I use tech this holiday? Since we are far from home here in Nebraska, I sent video and pictures, of course! I also sent video and pics of the festivities of Friday's classes. I guess in short, this is one of the main reasons I love technology.
Some will argue that tech divides us and turns us into an army of digitalized zombies.
I assert that tech brings us closer together as a community and as a family. As proof, I offer this picture that I took in traffic on Wednesday in Papillion, Nebraska, and immediately sent to my family and friends on my phone. Within minutes, all my friends as far away as the U.K., Egypt and Korea saw this crazy turkey and we shared a laugh.
Tech has the ability to divide us, but also to bring us together to share the common (or not so common) experiences of life.
And I, for one, am thankful.
I'm an 8th grade English teacher in Bellevue, Nebraska, and I'm excited about technology in the classroom.
