Tinkering and Exploration

Summary:

Angie Bundy explains why it may be helpful for teachers to give up some control when teaching new technologies and to allow the students to lead. She provides a video showing how her fifth graders “tinker and explore” their way through learning Keynote.

“If you are willing to give up control and let students be in the driver seat, a lot of times they’re the ones who can help lead you to the right places and do the right things with technology.”

This video describes how I create an environment that allows students to tinker and explore in the classroom. Several clips show how I try to infuse technology seamlessly into my curriculum and how my fifth grade students teach each other, learn together, and learn by doing.
