Cool cat Digital Learning

Check out this video from Ed Tech Guru, Vicki Davis and how she uses technology. One thing she emphasizes is that there are many things that she doesn't know when she is teaching students to use technology, quite often the students show her. This shows the power of collaborative learning with students! You don't need to be an expert, just have an open mind to learning alongside the students. If you don't know something, they will be happy to show you! ;)
