Technology, Passion and Learning: That was the title of Shirley Rinaldi’s Prezi at Friday’s Embracing Innovation Conference ( Twitter hashtag: #eic11).
Shirley teaches 6th grade humanities and she’s worked at PDS since 1993. She writes a blog Talking the Tech Walk with another middle school teacher and you can follow their story there.
This year she has been on a teaching and learning exploration using 2.0 internet tools to enhance her humanities work and empower her students.
The journey began at a conference two years ago. And was propelled by a tweet from the past.
But let the Prezi tell the story of that journey.
Here’s a link to her students’ class blog and below is a short video of four of those students describing their favorite tool (up to now, of course).
