Tinkering and Exploration


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.
