Ms. Cassidy had a vision of breaking the classroom boredom. Stepping out of the mold that most classrooms follow, Ms. Cassidy has her place in pioneering technology in the classrooms. Others not supporting her did not discourage her. She admitted there were trails and errors, but that is how she perfected her work.
The technique I would use from Ms. Cassidy's conversation is blogging. The students interest and excitement using this form of technology out shines the other forms of technology. One of the many concerns about technology is unruly students visiting bad websites. Notifying the principal is the only thing legally I can think of.
I want to thank Ms. Cassidy for sharing her students and experience with us, along with the beautiful backyard of snow. Among the many benefits this pioneer has given us, hard work and caring for your students future is what that I will hold in mind.
