Tom Grissom’s Tech Talk 4 Teachers podcast is a “must listen” this week. If you’ve never listened Tom’s podcast this episode is a great one to get you started. Tom discusses using technology resources to have students address higher order thinking problems. In addressing this topic, Tom shares some great ideas for using Wordle in the classroom. I won’t tell you what his idea is, you have to visit his blog to find out.
Tom also poses a great question regarding creativity and the use of multimedia tools like Animoto. His question is “can we still call this creativity if the machine is making the decisions for us?” It’s a great question and I encourage you to leave a comment on Tom’s blog regarding his question. You can do so at Tech Talk 4 Teachers.
