On March 25, 2014..... I had the pleasure of doing a learning walk at Lakeside Middle School in Little Elm, TX. During my time as a Technology Coordinator, Ive visited a lot of school district's 1:1 program but this one was by far the best ever!!!! It was so cool how technology was being implemented.
We meet the Instructional Technology Specialist (Mr. Marcus Miller) and he was a great tour guide. Mr. Miller took us to several different classrooms where 1:1 was being implemented. This one particular math classroom stood out to me in particular. In this 21st century classroom, the students were on a website called Zondle (https://www.zondle.com/publicPages/welcome.aspx). The website looked and sounded pretty cool. The students were engaged and learning was definetly taking place. The atmosphere in this classroom was awesome. Students were using their Google Crome Books ( laptop), listening to their music on their iPods, and learning all at the same time. I was amazed at how the students were learning but having fun at the same time. This is exactly how I imagined a 21st century classroom to look like. Another cool place in this school was called the "Google Dome". The "Google Dome" room is where students can go and get their computers repaired during school. Little Elm School district is definetly on the right track to creating a 21st century digital school. Kudos to You!!!!!!!! Here are some pictures from the classes.
